Firefighters were alerted to a blaze at the Glasgow Dental School and Hospital building in the early hours of this morning. Police said that it appeared to have been started deliberately.

Four fire crews and multiple police officers converged on the scene just after 1am after an alarm went off inside a multi-storey building.

A spokesperson for Scottish Fire and Rescue said: “We were alerted at 1.18am to reports of a building alarm sounding and smoke coming from a multi storey building in Sauchiehall Street in Glasgow.

“Operations control mobilised four appliances and a height appliance to the scene and firefighters extinguished a large waste bin leaning against the rear of the building. There were no casualties and crews left the scene at 2.32am after ensuring the area was made safe.”

A Police Scotland spokesperson said to Glasgow Live: “The fire is being treated as wilful and enquiries are ongoing.”
