Pratt Street is sealed off from its junction with Ramsay Road as appliances tackle the blaze in a property which is next to a car wash business. Two appliances are at the scene. All traffic is being diverted down Ramsay Road or stopped from going up past Stark’s Park, causing significant delays in the Links area with diversions already in place for the Links Market.

The street was the scene of a fatal fire in March which saw neighbours evacuated while fire crews extinguished the blaze.
