The coffee stall was in front of the white tent but has been cleared away
A fire has almost completely destroyed a charity's coffee stall in a busy part of Edinburgh used by festival acts.
The blaze broke out on The Mound at 1955 BST on Thursday - an area which is popular for street entertainment for the Fringe festival.
Firefighters said a propane cylinder was well alight when they arrived at the scene.
Police and the ambulance service were called but charity Streetwork, which owns the stall, said nobody was hurt.
The stall was launched two years ago with the aim of training young homeless people to operate the facility.
Gordon Watson, from Streetwork UK, said: "Thankfully no-one was in the stall or injured and the emergency services dealt with the resulting fire quickly and efficiently.
"The facility met all the necessary trading standards and this incident was an unfortunate accident.
"We will be reviewing our operating policies to minimize the risk of such an accident happening again. We can only apologise for any inconvenience caused."
The fire has left the stretch of road where the coffee stall stood heavily charred.
Witnesses said there were loud sounds, similar to explosions, coming from the stall.
