Here are some of the craziest pictures from Arthur’s Seat late night blaze

14 degrees was too much for Scotland


Last night, Scottish Fire and Rescue services were called to Arthur's Seat at 6:30pm after a suspected gorse fire broke out. They were on the scene until 2:45am attempting to calm the blaze.

Whilst this was going on, tonnes of photos were circulating all over social media, some of which made us feel as though we were right in the middle of it all.

Honestly, take a look at these – they are mad.
