Caravans destroyed in fire
Two caravans have been destroyed by a blaze at a travellers site in the north-east of Scotland.
A total of 13 firefighters, some from as far afield as Aberdeen, fought to contain the fire, which occurred at Clinterty, near Blackburn, the Evening News reports.
The incident highlights the importance of having a caravan insurance policy in place that will cover fire damage.
A spokesman for the Grampian Fire and Rescue Service explained to the newspaper that the blaze originated in one of the vehicles, noting: "There was a caravan on fire and then that spread to another caravan".
Caravans can be vulnerable to fire damage and police in the south-west of England are currently investigating an incident that occurred in an Exeter car park on December 21st, in which a caravan was completely destroyed by flames.
The fire also damaged two cars parked nearby, as well as an adjacent building.
