Firefighters were called after a fire broke out in a flat in Methil last night.

Two crews from Methil and one from Kirkcaldy were alerted to the incident at the premises in Taylor Street at around 11.23pm after a report of a fire in a bedroom.

An elderly female occupant is understood to have got out of the property before the firefighters arrived and a spokesperson for the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service said crews also evacuated an upstairs flat as well as a precautionary measure.
