‘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.
“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.”
