A 15-year-old boy has been charged with wilful fireraising after a blaze that "caused fear and alarm" in Dalgety Bay.

Disused premises in Hillend Industrial Estate went up in flames around 6.40pm on Wednesday 6 September.

At the time, local residents were advised to stay indoors and close doors and windows as a precaution due to the presence of asbestos within the building.

Police later said the small amount of asbestos in the building was unaffected by the fire and there was no risk to the community.

The blaze was extinguished shortly after 10pm.

Following joint enquiries by the Scottish Fire & Rescue Service and Police Scotland, the fire was treated as deliberate.

The 15-year-old will now be reported.

Sergeant Kenny Bow of Dalgety Bay said: "This fire caused fear and alarm to the local community and specialist resources were required as a result of the potential asbestos concerns.

"Fortunately, this did not present any risk to the public, but the consequences could have been far more serious.

"Reckless conduct such as this will not be tolerated and anyone found to be involved in such foolish acts of destruction will be robustly dealt with.

"We would also urge parents and guardians to remind children in their care not to access disused or derelict buildings, as doing so can place themselves and others in danger."
