Innerleithen: Crews battle forest fire near golf club

FIRE crews have been working today (Sunday) to contain a forest fire near a Borders golf course.

Crews were called to the scene near Innerleithen Golf Club.

And they have been at the scene throughout the day.

The golf club, which is right in front of the woodland, has been forced to close.

In a statement on Facebook this morning, the Clubhouse Restaurant wrote: “Due to a fire in the hills surrounding the golf course, and the fire services need to use the clubhouse as a base of operations, we will be closed for the day.

“We will be resuming service tomorrow from 10am unless otherwise stated.”
