Firefighters are tackling a large fire in a building in Greenock town centre.
Crews were called to the scene in Jamaica Street at about 17:07.
The fire service said a number of engines had been mobilised and firefighters were dealing with a “large, well-developed” blaze.
A spokeswoman said: “Crews remain on scene and are working to extinguish the fire.” Police Scotland said road closures were in place and advised people to avoid the area.
Police Scotland Control Rooms tweeted: “For everyone’s safety please stay clear.”
The building involved is thought to be a furniture shop.
A funeral home nearby was forced to move bodies to another premises as fire crews tackled the blaze.
In a post on their Facebook page, Green Oak Funeral Services said that their landlines were unavailable but “all loved ones were being cared for in our Port Glasgow premises”.
