PUPILS at two Rosyth schools were sent home this morning (Wednesday) after a power cut.
Kings Road and Camdean Primaries - and both schools' nurseries - were closed after the cut struck at 10.30am.
Approximately 400 households in Rosyth were also affected.
A spokesperson for Scottish Power said, "We had a fault in a substation at Belleknowes Industrial Estate (Inverkeithing).
"Engineers were sent out to fix the problem as soon as possible and managed to get all customers' power back by about 11.10pm.
"We apologise for the inconvenience caused."

The schools closed because of the power cut, and parents arrived to find the lights on!
Apparently once the decision has been made, it cannot be unmade!
Sounds like teachers getting more time off!
Are they still thinking of strike action over a suggestion to 'shorten their holidays'? and some other changes to working conditions?
I know schools shouldn't be considered childcare, but wouldn't it be better to have all those 'in-service' days that they never had before put into the holiday period? Thereby reducing disruption for pupils and parents alike, getting more contact between teachers and pupils, and complying with the reducing holidays suggestion?
Or would it be better for everyone to just strike?
