Investigations are continuing into a fatal fire in Leven yesterday (Tuesday).

Police Scotland has confirmed it is currently investigating a fire at a house in Baird Crescent, in which one person died.

The blaze was reported to emergency services shortly after 11.00 a.m.

A spokesman said inquiries were at an early stage but, following a joint assessment of the house by police and the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service, along with an investigation into the circumstances leading up to the fire being discovered, it would appear to be a tragic accident with no suspicious circumstances.

“We are continuing to make enquires to identify the person found within the house,” added the spokesman. “I would like to thank the local community for their patience while we carry out our investigations and appeal to anyone who was in the area that morning who may have information to contact the Police using the 101 non-emergency number.”
