The top boss of a housing association will provide residents with temporary accomodation following a fire. 

Gary Dalziel made the promise today after residents were evacuated following an early morning blaze in Govan's Garmouth Street.

Evening Times:

The chief executive of Elderpark Housing Association said: "We have been round and spoken to the emergency services and are liaising with the tenants.

"We will be providing temporary accommodation for them until we know the extent of and can assess the damage.

"For now, we're looking to support the family and repair the building.

"There doesn't appear to be any serious injury, which is the most crucial thing.

"We also plan to work with the fire service to raise awareness of fire safety in the next week or two."

A neighbour of the family - a mother and father with their four children - three girls and one boy - said: "It was about 5am when I was woken up.

"I watched from the window and saw the family being brought down to the ambulances.

"They were walking, though, they weren't on stretchers or anything like that."

Police Scotland previously said the fire did not appear to be suspicious. 

The properties to either side of the affected town house were not damaged and it is hoped all tenants will be back in their homes by the end of the day.
