Images show huge fire which closed Scots road as emergency services rushed to scene

Firefighters tackled a huge blaze at a building beside a Fife country road last night.

The fire took hold inside an outbuilding at Dales Cottages beside the B981 between Inverkeithing and Crossgates, near Cowdenbeath, after 10pm last night.

Locals reported hearing explosions more than a mile from the site, known locally as Dales Road, as the inferno raged.

The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service scrambled seven appliances and specialist resources to tackle the fire, which is understood to have started in a garage.

There were no casualties from the incident.
