An elderly woman has died following a house fire in South Uist.
The casualty - said to be in her 80s - lived alone in Garrynamoine in the south end
of the island.
Fire crews from Lochboisdale and Benbecula were summoned to the blaze when the alarm
was raised just after 11.05am this morning.
Firefighters wore breathing sets because of the thick smoke inside the property.
A Police Scotland spokesman said: “Police can confirm that a woman, the only resident
within the property, has sadly died as a result of the fire.
He said next of kin have been informed.
