Building collapses after late night blaze

A three-storey tenement building in Glasgow’s southside has collapsed after a fire spread from a ground floor shop.

Several fire crews have been working through the night to tackle the blaze, which is now under control.

The fire has burned through the building on Albert Cross in Pollokshields from the ground floor to the roof.

Residents were evacuated from the building and one person has been treated for the effects of smoke.

Roads in the surrounding area were closed following the blaze which is thought to have started in the minimarket, Strawberry Garden, late on Sunday evening.

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon, who represents the area in the Scottish Parliament, described it as “dreadful news” for affected residents and businesses and urged constituents who need help to email or call her office.

Albert Drive, Kenmure Street and several nearby roads have been cordoned off to traffic and are expected to remain closed for several hours.
