One person received first aid treatment at the scene of a house fire which broke out last night in Leslie’s high street.

The blaze was discovered around 8.30pm in a room of a ground-floor flat in a tenement opposite the Greenside Hotel.

Two fire engines from Glenrothes were in attendance and spent around half an hour tackling the fire, while police were also in attendance.

One person was given first aid by firefighters but did not require hospital treatment, while no one else was evacuated from the building, said a fire service spokesman.
