POLICE are treating a blaze in the East End of Glasgow on Saturday night as a deliberate act.

Emergency services rushed to the scene in Tollcross at around 8.15pm as a fire ripped through J M Simpson & Co. on Tollcross Road.

The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service confirmed that four appliances were in attendance as they battled to extinguish the flames.

This morning, Police Scotland confirmed the fire is being treated as 'wilful' and that no one was injured during the incident.

A spokesperson said: "At 8.15pm, emergency services attended a fire at a commercial building.

"It is being treated as wilful and a joint investigation is under way with the police and fire service.
