Firemen battle blaze at Indian restaurant for four hours


By Christine Lavelle

FIREFIGHTERS battled a blaze for almost four hours, which started at an Indian restaurant in Dunfermline.

Emergency services were called to Khushis Restaurant on Canmore Street at around 12.15pm today.

Six appliances from Fife Fire and Rescue were used to tackle the flames, which led to local road closures in and around the area.

No injuries were reported, but an ambulance stayed at the scene throughout to offer support to firemen, and the blaze was brought under control at around 4pm.

A Scottish Ambulance spokesman said: “We were called to the scene but did not have to treat anyone.”

Fife Police closed off roads near to the restaurant, and warned St Margarets Street and Canmore Street would be closed for another few hours.

A Fife Constabulary spokesman said: “There are no reported injuries and the cause of the fire is yet to be investigated.”
