THREE fire appliances from Lerwick and Scalloway were called out to a fire in a shed on Saturday morning.
One appliance from Lerwick and another from Scalloway were sent to the scene at the Burland Croft in Trondra after the call came in at 11.43am.
A fire on board a tractor was extinguished after a third appliance was called in to assist with water. No injuries were reported.
Fire crews were also called out on Saturday afternoon to reports of a fire on a fishing boat in Lerwick, but it had been extinguished before they arrived.
