Fire crews remain at the scene of a large-scale blaze at a disused furniture store in Glasgow city centre more than 24 hours after it originally started.

Nine appliances including pumps and aerial equipment were dispatched to Kingston Street in the Tradeston area of the city after being made aware of the blaze shortly before 10am on Sunday morning.

Around 24 hours after the fire started, one appliance from the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service remains at the scene and cordons continue to be in place in the area.

There are no reports of any injuries at this time.

Crews remain on the scene.

A Police Scotland spokesperson said: “Cordons are in place as the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service continue to extinguish a blaze and make secure surrounding buildings in the Tradeston area.”

Nearby buildings were evacuated and roads around the area were closed while an operation to extinguish the blaze took place on Sunday.

Neighbours were also urged to stay inside and keep windows closed while smoke billowed from the top of the building.

At its height, nine appliances plus height equipment were battling back the flames.

A Scottish Fire and Rescue Service spokesperson said one remains on the scene, adding part of the fire was still burning.

They said: “We were alerted at 9.54am on Sunday, October 16 to reports of a fire affecting a building at Kingston Street, Glasgow.

“Operations Control mobilised four fire appliances and one height vehicle to the scene.

“There are no reported casualties. One appliance remains in attendance as crews continue to work to extinguish the fire.”
