Firefighters raced to tackle a blaze in Fife tonight as thick black smoke billowed into the sky.
Just before 5pm today, Scottish Fire and Rescue Service equipment was mobilized to the scene of the accident on Wellesley Road in Methil, Leven.
Emergency services were called to reports of a building fire in the street when locals saw thick black smoke coming from the blaze.
SFRS teams confirmed that a total of two devices are currently on site to extinguish the flames.
An abandoned nightclub is believed to be in the building where the fire broke out.
It was the former Mazwell’s Bar, also known as Rick’s, which before it closed was one of the most popular nightclubs in the city of Fife.
Photos from the scene, shared by the Fife Jammer Locations Facebook page, showed plumes of black smoke billowing into the sky.
Huge flames also erupted from the roof of the building.
And SFRS crews have been spotted on the streets struggling to put out the inferno.
Police are understood to have cordoned off the crime scene and closed surrounding roads.
Traffic was diverted through the lower Methil area.
It is currently unclear what caused the fire.
And it is not known if anyone was injured by the fire.
An SFRS spokesman said: “We received reports at 4.48pm today of a fire on Wellesley Road in Methil, Leven.”
“We currently have two teams in action.”
Scottish Police have been contacted for comment.
