Five fire appliances were called to the scene in Ramsay Road around 4:00am. Roads around the building remain cordoned off while investigations continue.
The building reduced to a charred shell, but the blaze did not spread to the former school which has stood since the late 1890s and used to be Abbotshall Infant School. More recently it has been used by Fife Council, but has been empty for several years.
A spokesperson for the SFRS said: “We were in attendance at a disused nursery on Ramsay Road in Kirkcaldy. We got the call at 3.49am, there were five appliances on the scene sent from Kirkcaldy, Methil and Burntisland.”
