Three people died after a fire broke out at a block of flats in Glasgow

Three people died after a fire broke out at a block of flats, police have said.

Fire crews were called to a flat in Acre Road in the Maryhill area of Glasgow at 11.37pm late on Friday.

Three people were rescued from the flat suffering from “severe” smoke inhalation.

They received first aid from firefighters but were confirmed dead at the scene.

Strathclyde Fire and Rescue Service could not confirm the ages or gender of the occupants of the flat.

The blaze follows a a series of house fires in the Strathclyde area.

Earlier this month Scotland’s top firefighter said a 10-day period over Christmas had seen an “unprecedented level of tragedy” with five deaths and hundreds of homes destroyed by fire.

Strathclyde Fire and Rescue Service chief officer Brian Sweeney said they had dealt with the highest number of incidents for 10 years with 68 injuries and 250 homes destroyed during the period.
