A fire has ripped through a derelict pub in Glasgow.
The blaze happened at the old Maryhill Tavern on Cumlodden Drive in the west of the city at 8.50pm on Wednesday.
Around 30 firefighters were called to tackle the flames for around nine hours.
The fire, which could be seen for miles, was originally on the ground floor before spreading to other parts of the building.
A stretch of Maryhill Road remains closed while investigations are being carried out.
A Scottish Fire and Rescue Service spokeswoman said: "We were alerted at around 8.50pm to reports of a fire at a derelict building in Maryhill.
"Operations control originally mobilised four fire engines to Cumlodden Drive to a fire on the ground floor of a three-storey building.
"There were no casualties."
The blaze comes just seven months after the pub was deliberately set on fire. It also suffered damage in 2016 when it was set alight.
