Fire crews raced to an outbuilding near the B981 on Dales Road between Inverkeithing and Crossgates in Scotland. Dramatic images shared on social media show the fire spreading through woodland next to a building at the side of the road.
Thick, black smoke could be seen for miles as the inferno towered into the sky.
A spokesperson for the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service said: “We were called to reports of a fire within an outbuilding at Dale Cottages at around 10:07pm last night.
“We mobilised seven fire appliances to the scene.
“There were no reports of any casualties.”
Locals reported hearing explosions over a mile from the site as the fire raged.
The fire is understood to have started in a garage.
One local said: “It’s a garage fire – everyone looked to be out and safe.
“We phoned the fire brigade and they were already aware on en route so we left to keep the road clear.”
