FIVE fire crews are tackling a blaze in Pollokshields - just one week since a tenement building was destroyed in a fire.

A ground floor flat is currently on fire on Melville Street.

Emergency services were called to the scene shortly after 7pm.

A spokeswoman for the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service confirmed the incident.

She said: "We are in attendance at Melville Street.

"We have five appliances at the scene."

Last Monday, in the early hours, a building collapsed on Albert Drive in Pollokshields, forcing residents to flee.

More than 40 properties were evacuated.
