EMERGENCY services have raced to South Fod Farm in Dunfermline to tackle a fire in one of the outbuildings.

Four fire applicances are tackling the blaze with police also in attendance at the site.

A spokeswoman from Scottish Fire and Rescue service said: “The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service was alerted at 3.54pm on Thursday, 16 February to reports of a derelict building alight at Linburn Road, Dunfermline.

“A total of six appliances were mobilised to the scene, including a High Reach Appliance.

“Firefighters are currently working to extinguish the fire.”

Andy Bennett, station manager at Scottish Fire and Rescue Service, Dunfermline, confirmed that rubbish was set alight in one of the outbuildings with the fire spreading through the roof.

The Press told you last week that the site attracted 86 police calls in the past year, and was identified as one of two hotspots for anti-social behaviour in the area.

On October 5 last year, fire crews rushed to the farm to tackle a substantial fire at one of the derelict barns containing nothing but rubbish.

A total of 14 deliberate fires have been set in the Dunfermline Central area in the past year, with Calais Muir Wood the second notorious hotspot for fire-setting and anti-social behaviour.
