Firefighters are investigating the cause of a three-car blaze that closed the multi-storey car park at Edinburgh Airport.

The airport terminal remained open while crews tackled the first-floor fire.

Pictures on social media showed a cloud of black smoke billowing from the car park.

The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service said they were called to the airport at 12.50pm on Friday.

A spokeswoman said: "On arrival, crews found three cars on fire producing large volumes of smoke.

"Four firefighters in breathing apparatus were able to bring the fire under control with a high-pressure jet hose.

"Fire services remain at the airport and are making sure the fire is completely extinguished before they leave. Officers from the SFRS fire investigation unit are also at the scene.''

An airport spokesman said: "I can confirm that the fire in our multi-storey car park has been dealt with.

"We are currently investigating the cause. We thank passengers for their patience and co-operation as we handled the situation.''
