A FIRE in a derelict caravan triggered an emergency response in Rosyth on Monday evening.

Firefighters were called to land on Willow Crescent near the town's Sainsburys store shortly before 9.30pm.

A Scottish Fire and Rescue Service spokesperson said: "We were alerted at 9.20pm on Monday, August 7 to reports of a derelict caravan on fire on Willow Crescent, Rosyth.

"Operations control mobilised two fire appliances to the scene where firefighters extinguished the fire.

"There were no reported casualties and crews left at 9.52pm after ensuring the area had been made safe."

Earlier this year, concern was raised over the abandoned site at Rosyth which was to form part of the multi-million pound Hilton Garden City.

One resident said the plot west of Camdean Primary School had been untouched for four years and had become "considerably dangerous" while reaching the bus stop on Camdean Crescent was "perilous".

Avant Homes, which had previously been involved with the Garden City development, has submitted plans for 170 homes on the site.

If successful, it previously told the Press that it planned to buy the site for a 170-home development.
