Inverclyde was hit badly with heavy thunder and lightning storms today, bringing torrential rains.
A block of flats in Campbell Street was hit by lightning and a fire ensued.
My arrival on site was curtailed by roads being closed due to flooding, but here are some images from the site as the blaze was brought under control.
The firefighters were doing a grand job and everything seemed to being handled in a professional manner.
I'm pleased to report that there were no casualties following the blaze and there were a few relieved faces at what could have been a much worse scenario.
