FIREFIGHTERS were called to a blaze in the laundry room of a luxury hotel in North Berwick this evening (Saturday). 

The Macdonald Marine Hotel and Spa was evacuated after the fire was discovered.

However Scottish Fire and Rescue said the fire was brought under control quickly and no-one had been injured in the incident.

Guests took to social media to share images as they stood outside the hotel, on the town's Cromwell Road, after the fire was discovered shortly after 9pm.

Mr Morris also posted a video (see below) of the incident, which showed smoke coming from the five-star hotel.

Three fire engines attended and the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service said: "The hotel was evacuated and the fire brought under control quickly."
