THIS is the dramatic moment a Stagecoach bus burst into flames in Dunfermline town centre this morning (Saturday).

The incident happened shortly before 9am this morning on Carnegie Drive, close to the old fire station and the Tesco supermarket.

A spokesperson for Stagecoach East Scotland said: “The bus developed a technical fault during its journey. There were no passengers on board the bus at the time. 

“The driver safely exited the vehicle and the emergency services were called. Safety is our absolute priority and an investigation is under way into the cause of the incident.”

It's not the first incident of a bus catching fire in Dunfermline.

In December 2019, a school service bus caught fire on Pilmuir Street near to Queen Anne High School.
