Two dead in luxury hotel fire on banks of Loch Lomond”

At least four people have been taken to hospital.

Visitors staying at Cameron House, near Balloch on Loch Lomondside were evacuated from the building this morning as an inferno took hold. "A fourth patient was taken to the Royal Alexandria Hospital".

"But when we left - five stairs down from our room - we saw a whole room full of smoke and flames".

More than 200 residents were evacuated from the hotel.

"The flames are well above the treeline".

"Thanks to the emergency services who have been working all morning to get the fire under control".

"A report will be submitted to the Procurator Fiscal".

The hotel, which is on the west bank of the loch - about 17 miles north-west of Glasgow - said it would remain closed for at least the next 48 hours.

North Wales police tweeted: '#A494 in area of Gateway to Wales Hotel - road disruption and lane closure impending due to fire.

"We would ask all guests and customers to remain patient as we work with the emergency services to establish the extent of the damage and ascertain when we will be able to re-open".

Pictures show flames and smoke rising from the roof of the five-star hotel as fire engines swoop on the scene. Police Scotland said it could not confirm that. The heat coming off the fire was vast.

"As far as I'm aware the fire has been put out and the building has burnt down to just a shell".

The Cameron House Hotel called firefighters at 6.41 a.m. local time to say that the building, a stone-built mansion, was ablaze.
