A Fife scout hall suffered extensive damage in a dramatic blaze on Monday night.
Police are investigating the cause of the fire at the singe-storey building in Cardenden, home of the 4th Fife group, which was recently refurbished following a fundraising drive by the young people who use it.
Cardenden Road was closed for several hours as firefighters from Lochgelly and Dunfermline battled the flames until the early hours of Tuesday morning.
Eyewitnesses said the fire appeared to have broken out in a storeroom shortly before 9pm and spread to the roof space.
No-one was injured in the incident and the road re-opened just before 2.30am.
The full extent of the damage is still being assessed but the scout group is said to be devastated by the incident.
In a post on their Facebook page they said: “The fire and smoke has damaged the property and therefore made it unusable.
“We are understandably devastated and it is too early to assess the full extent of the damage to the building or the cause of the fire itself.”
A gofundme page has already been set up to raise money towards refurbishing the building and renting alternative accommodation in the meantime.
Offers of help have also been flooding in from other scout groups across Fife and from members of the community.
