A major blaze has broken out at the Gordon Arms Hotel in the Yarrow Valley between Selkirk and Moffat.
Staff spotted the fire in the roof earlier this afternoon and it quickly spread.
First crews from the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service on the scene described it as well developed.
They called for back-up which included a height appliance from the Sighthill station in Edinburgh.
Crews from Innerleithen, Selkirk, Moffat and Galashiels are in attendance.
The fire is now under control.
The Gordon Arms, close to st Mary’s Loch, is popular with folk musicians and houses a recording studio.
No-one was hurt in the incident.
