A Fife family have been left devastated after their house was destroyed by fire on Thursday evening.
Around 30 firefighters were called to tackle the blaze which broke out at a property in Durris Drive, Glenrothes, shortly before 9.45pm but despite their best efforts, the property suffered significant damage.
Occupants Kerry and Andrew Glover, along with their three children aged 12, six and five, and their dogs all managed to escape before the fire took hold.
They are currently recovering from their ordeal at Kerry’s sister, Natasha Keenan’s house.
Natasha has set up a Go Fund Me fundraising page on behalf of Kerry and her family, and offers of support and donations have been flooding in to help start rebuilding their lives.
“They have lost everything,” Natasha said.
“Nothing is able to be saved, every room went on fire. Hopefully they will be re-housed soon but they currently have no clothes, toys, personal items, food… absolutely nothing.
“So I’ve set this Go Fund Me up with Kerry’s permission to try and raise funds to get them back on their feet.”
Kerry herself has posted on social media, thanking people for their well wishes.
“Everything is totally ruined but myself, husband, kids and the dogs are all safe which is the main thing.
“Just means we have to start from scratch but would rather that than having to do it without one of our family members.”
The alarm was raised following a report of a fire within the mid-terraced property.
One person was treated at the scene for smoke inhalation but did not require hospital treatment.
A spokesperson for the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service said it was called at 9.42pm and brought the fire under control by midnight, although significant damage was caused to the building.
Two appliances from Glenrothes, two from Methil, one from Lochgelly and one from Kirkcaldy were all mobilised to the scene at the height of the fire.
A spokesperson for Police Scotland confirmed that a joint investigation into the exact cause of the fire with the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service had been carried out and found the fire “not to be suspicious”.
