Kirkcudbright flat fire 'arduous and difficult'

Weather conditions made tackling Kirkcudbright flat fire 'arduous and difficult'.

"The upper floor of one of the flats was gutted and extensive damage has been caused to the roofs. The two flats at the side of the property were protected.

"Due to the weather conditions last night the fire was very arduous and difficult to tackle."
