A Scots family home caught fire as temperatures reached 23 degrees Celsius over the weekend.

Fire crews were called to a property in Cambuslang on the outskirts of Glasgow on Friday afternoon to reports of a dwelling fire.

The Scottish Fire & Rescue Service (SFRS) said that crews found the timber frame of the 4-bedroom home on Langlea Drive “well alight” on arrival.

A total of four appliances were mobilised to help extinguish the blaze.

Crews spent approximately seven hours at the scene before leaving after ensuring the area was made safe.

There were no reports of any casualties, SFRS said.

Reports suggest the property caught fire after the sun reflected on a discarded pane of glass on the front lawn.

A SFRS spokesperson said: ”We were alerted at 4.27pm on Friday, June 2 to reports of a dwelling fire on Langlea Drive, Cambuslang. Operations Control immediately mobilised two appliances to the scene and on arrival firefighters found the timber frame building well alight.
