A man has been rushed to hospital after being rescued from the roof of a burning building in the Borders.
Emergency services were called to the blaze at a three-storey building on Ettrick Road in Selkirk in the early hours of Saturday morning.
Firefighters discovered the second floor was engulfed with flames and rescued the man using a ladder.
The man, who was suffering from smoke inhalation, was taken to hospital by ambulance as firefighters continued to tackle the blaze.
Crews remained at the property almost 12 hours later.
A spokesman from the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service said: “We mobilised seven fire appliances and one height appliance to the scene.
“We were met with a well developed fire on the second floor of a three-storey property.
“We carried out a rescue of one male casualty from the roof of the property using a nine-metre ladder.
“The casualty was suffering smoke inhalation and transported to hospital by the ambulance service.”
