More than 50 firefighters are tackling a blaze in a four-storey tenement in Glasgow.
The blaze broke out on Eglinton Street in the south side of the city at around 2pm on Thursday.
A woman had to be rescued from one of the top floors using a hydraulic lift. She has been taken to hospital suffering smoke inhalation.
Other residents of the flats have been evacuated. Strathclyde Fire and Rescue Service said that there were no reports of any other injuries.
Eglinton Street is closed southbound at Devon Street and Pollokshaws Road is closed northbound at Coplaw Street.
Road users have been advised by Glasgow City Council to expect delays. Buses travelling along Eglinton Toll have also been affected.
Assistant chief officer Lewis Ramsay said: "Firefighters who first arrived on the scene quickly evacuated the premises and I'm pleased to say there have been no reports of serious injuries.
"We're now bringing the fire under control, and crews will be on scene for an extended period of time as we work to bring this incident to a safe conclusion."
