Fife Scrapyard Fire


More than 1000 tonnes of scrap was ablaze at a Scottish scrapyard today (fri).

Firefighters from across Fife rushed to the fire at RM Supplies in Inverkeithing, Fife after a fire was reported at 5.45am.

Crews from as far away as Glenrothes, a 20 mile journey, helped tackle the blaze, which was still burning well into the afternoon.

A spokesman for Fife Fire and Rescue Service said the yard was

“well alight’ and that cranes within the yard were being used to remove debris from the top of the scrap pile to get to the fire underneath.

Due to the number of crews attending, eight at the fire’s peak, Central Scotland Fire and Rescue were left to provide cover for the area.
