Scottish family 'lose everything' after caravan fire destroys their home
A Scottish family returned home to find their house destroyed after a caravan fire took hold on Friday.
Emergency services had raced to the blaze in Kennoway, Fife, on Friday after reports of the fire had been made shortly after 5pm.
Quickly going up in flames, the incident is believed to have started in a neighbour's caravan, before spreading across and into the property.
Thankfully, no injuries were reported as a result of the fire, however the Record reports that the homeowners have "lost everything" in the blaze.
At the height of the blaze, six fire engines were in attendance with water being pumped overhead onto the house.
Images taken at the scene show thick, black smoke billowing over the village in the aftermath of the fire.
Further images show the charred framework of the house still smoking after the roof collapsed.
One witness said: "The house has been gutted, as has the caravan
"We saw the smoke and flames, we initially thought it was a shed fire until we realised it was worse.
"My neighbour is a fireman, he was off-duty when it happened. He ran over but the fire was too established for him to do anything alone.
