‘I heard the fire engine screaming past’

An eyewitness said: “I heard the fire engine screaming past as I was driving into Carnoustie town centre and immediately stopped to see what was happening.

“There was a lot of activity outside one of the houses along Kinloch Street where there were two fire engines and an ambulance.

The fire broke out inside a house.

“I hope everyone is OK and no one has been hurt at all. Not something we are used to seeing in Carnoustie – especially on a Sunday.”

No injuries were reported.

“We received the call at 4.32pm and three appliances were sent.

“All persons that were in the house are accounted for. The fire had been extinguished by the time we arrived.

“We remain in attendance.”
