Grass fire at Nesting
Firefighters were called to a grass fire at North Nesting just after 1.30pm today (Saturday).
One appliance from Brae and two from Lerwick went to the scene, and the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service reports that 17 hectares of grassland were destroyed. The fire engines were back at base by 4.30pm.
This is the second grass fire this week, and follows the larger one at Mousavord Loch at Sandness on Thursday afternoon.
