FIREFIGHTERS tackled three blazes at derelict flats on the same street.

Around 15 firefighters attended 90 Ivanhoe Drive, in Hillhead, on Saturday at around 11.30pm.

The blaze on the top floor of the three storey building is being treated as malicious.

Crews were called from Kirkintilloch and Bishopbriggs and an aerial rescue appliance also attended from Maryhill. They remained at the scene until 3am the following morning.

Then on Sunday, at around 3.15pm, crews were called back out to the area to tackle another fire at a derelict building.

And on Monday at around 12.10am, firefighters tackled a bonfire. Anyone with information on the incidents are asked to contact police on 0141 532 4400.
