The Valley area of Kirkcaldy was shrouded in smoke on Sunday after a caravan was discovered ablaze.

The incident occurred at around half past nine on Sunday evening in a service area just behind Benarty Street.

A fire engine from Kirkcaldy’s Fire Station rushed to the scene to tackle the blaze as smoke bellowed from the caravan and travelled as far as the town centre.

Two hose reels were used by fire fighters whilst attempting to douse the flames.

The fire was finally extinguished shortly before 9.50 a.m. leaving the caravan as a burned out shell.

No one was hurt.

Now Police Scotland in Fife has launched an investigation to find out why the caravan went on fire.

A spokesman said: “Police in Fife were alerted to a fire on Benarty Street, Kirkcaldy, on Sunday at around 9.45 p.m..

“No injuries were reported and a joint police and fire investigation is underway to determine the likely cause.”
