Firefighters tackle major fire at indoor market
Nine fire engines are currently tackling the blaze at the Hilltown Indoor Market.
Fire crews have been called to a major blaze at an indoor market in Dundee.
Nine fire engines are currently tackling the fire at the Hilltown Indoor Market on Main Street.
This is the third major fire in Dundee in three days.
The fire is in the roof of the building and is currently spreading to the gym, Fit4less, next door.
A spokeswoman for Scottish Fire and Rescue Service said more than 60 firefighters are currently fighting to control the flames from spreading any further.
She said: "We were called at about 6.15pm to a fire at the Hilltown Indoor Market building.
"We currently have nine appliances in attendance.
"The fire is currently in the roof and is spreading to Fit4less next door."
Dundonian Dylan Drummond claimed hundreds of onlookers were at the scene.
The 48-year-old videographer and photographer said: "On the day after a fire in one of our high schools, to see smoke on the Dundee skyline, close to the opening of the V&A museum is horrific.
"There's smoke, it's a clear sky, you can really see it from far away, the stink is horrendous.
"A building fell down, looked like the fire brigade were hosing it down. The flames are mental, it looks like the whole building's on fire."
Thistle Street, Main Street, Dens Road and Isla Street have currently been closed off to the public while the fire is ongoing.
A spokesman for Police Scotland said: "There are presently road closures at Thistle Street, Main Street, Dens Road and Isla Street.
"The public are advised to avoid the area until further notice."
The spokesman added the building had "more or less collapsed".
