A former Kirkcaldy secondary school has again been hit by a fire – more than two years after a fierce blaze caused significant damage.
Firefighters were called to Viewforth High School in Loughborough Road at around 10.50pm on Sunday night following a report of a fire in one of the former classrooms.
Two crews from Kirkcaldy and one from Methil were called out to bring the blaze under control and the all-clear was given at around 12.15am.
The school closed its doors at the end of the 2016 term after 108 years of service, and pupils relocated to the Windmill Campus elsewhere in the town.
Concerns were heightened over what may become of the building and its grounds in October 2017 when a large fire broke out in the roof space of the school’s B-listed annexe, formerly known as Eastbank House.
Edinburgh-based developers and investors Whiteburn Projects have signalled their intention to renovate the C-listed former school building and convert the site into flats, and it remains to be seen what the latest fire incident will do to those plans.
