Primary in Fife closed until further notice after fire

Tulliallan Primary school in Kincardine will be closed until further notice following a fire in the early hours of Monday morning.

Fife Fire and Rescue Service said the blaze broke out at the site at about 0220 BST.

Early reports suggest no classrooms were damaged by fire, but there is extensive smoke damage.

A decontamination unit is involved in the clear-up because the building contains asbestos.

Fife Council's education senior manager James McKinstry said: "The school roll is around 170 pupils and we have notified parents that the school will be closed until further notice.

"Every effort will be made to reopen the school, as soon as possible, taking account of all health and safety issues."
