From The BBC

Firefighters in the Highlands have worked through the night to tackle a huge grassland blaze which broke out near Fort William on Monday.
At one point the fire stretched for a distance of about three miles, covering an area of 650 hectares, near the B8004 road above Banavie.
The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service said crews were continuing to monitor the scene.
There are no reports of any properties needing to be evacuated.
The firefighters work was hampered by the entire population of Scotland turning up looking for a free heat.Heat seekers spent hours rubbing hands and opening their palms to the hot radiance while talking about how warm it was this time last year and not looking forward to getting the gas bill.
