Firefighters are dealing with a major blaze at farm in west Fife.

Six crews are tackling the fire in a barn containing hundreds of straw bales near Saline.

No one is believed to have been hurt in the incident at Blairsgreen Farm, which began around 6pm on Sunday, and animals were understood to be safe.

However, firefighters have already spent four hours at the scene and are expected to be there for some time yet.

Police have closed the road between Saline and Oakley and warned people to stay away from the area.

At 9pm they said they expected the road to remain closed for some hours.

A fire service spokeswoman said: “The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service were alerted at 5.59pm on Sunday, April 12 to reports of a fire at a farm at Saline, Fife.

“Six fire appliances have been mobilised to the scene and crews are currently tackling a well developed fire in a barn containing several hundred bales of hay.

“There are no reported casualties.”
