Teenage Girl Reported Regarding Fire Near Milton of Leys Primary School

By Reporter, The HighLand Times, Tuesday May 15 2018

Police in Inverness have confirmed that a teenager will be reported in connection with a fire near Milton of Leys Primary School.

Officers and personnel from the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service were called to a play-park near the school around 7pm on Monday, May 14 where a quantity of wood chips were found to be alight.

An area of rubber base matting was also damaged.

The fire was extinguished by the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service before it spread into a nearby area of gorse.

A 14-year-old girl is to be reported to the Children's Reporter in connection with the fire.

Commenting Inspector Murdo MacLeod said:

"Fire-raising is inherently dangerous as you have no control over how it may develop.

"This particular fire had the potential to spread into gorse backing onto neighbouring houses and it is only though the quick action of our partners in at Scottish Fire and Rescue that it didn't.

"I would also like to thank the members of the public who highlighted this incident to the emergency services."
