Hunt for firebugs who torched derelict house in Fife

Police say they believe a fire at a derelict house in Fife was started deliberately.

Firefighters were called to the property on the road between Cairneyhill roundabout and Oakley just before 3.30pm yesterday.

However, it is thought the fire may have been started more than an hour earlier.

No one was injured, but the house was damaged.

Detective Sergeant Conrad Musgrave, of Dunfermline Police Station, said: "We would urge anyone who may have information which could help our investigation to get in touch.

"We would be especially keen to speak to anyone who was driving on the road between Cairneyhill Roundabout and Oakley between 1pm and 3.15pm on Sunday, particularly if you have dashcam footage.

"Anyone with information can call 101, quoting incident 2493 of 30 May, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111."
