Firefighters tackled a blaze in West Fife woodland for the best part of the weekend.  

Soaring temperatures continued to provide tough conditions for the fire service as they tried to get a wooded area near Braefoot Bay under control both on Saturday and Sunday.

White smoke could be seen across the Forth from Dalgety Bay for miles.  

Fire crews from Dunfermline, Kirkcaldy and Lochgelly were sent to the scene at 2.30pm on Saturday and were still at the scene until Sunday night. 

No one was injured but Police have warned the public to be vigilant and not to smoke or light fires anywhere near this area. 

A Scottish Fire and Rescue spokesman said: "The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service was alerted at 2.38pm on Saturday, June 30 to reports of a fire within an area of gorse in Dalgety Bay.

"Operations Control mobilised a number resources to the scene at Braefoot Plantation where firefighters worked to extinguish the flames, and crews re-attended the scene on Sunday, July 1.

"There were no casualties.

“Crews left the scene at 8.23pm on Sunday, after ensuring the area was made safe.”
