A fire that broke out at an abandoned building in Langholm is being treated as suspicious.

Police were called to William Street after a blaze started in the Old Mill at around 8:20pm on Tuesday evening.

The Fire and Rescue Services attended the scene and cordoned off the surrounding streets for safety. The flames were eventually extinguished.

Nobody was injured.

Officers are keen to speak to anybody who may have been in the area at the time, in particular a group of young people who were near the scene before the fire was found.

"Anyone with any information which may assist in this investigation is asked to call police on the 101 number, quoting the reference number 3881 25/6."

– Constable Loreto Burke
