Fire crews fought to extinguish a  grass fire near Oban’s Nant Drive on Saturday night.

Scottish Fire and Rescue Service (SFRS) was alerted to reports of a grass fire in open ground at 6.18pm on April 2.

Four fire engines were sent out said a SFRS spokesperson adding ‘firefighters extinguished the fire and crews left after ensuring the area was made safe.’
