DOZENS of firefighters were called out to tackle two large blazes in the Lothians.

Crews rushed to a property in Denholm Road, Musselburgh, after receiving an emergency call at 4.20pm.

They discovered a large blaze had broken out in an attic – fierce enough to cause the collapse of the property’s roof. A spokeswoman for Lothian and Borders Fire and Rescue said: “It was quite a big blaze, and many engines were needed.”

There were no reports of casualties.

Earlier, crews were called out to a semi-detached property in Easthouses, Dalkeith, after an emergency call was received at around 1pm.

Around 15 firefighters battled to extinguish a blaze on the property’s first floor, with no reports of casualties.

Fire investigation teams are working to establish the cause of both blazes.
