Fife Police are appealing for witnesses after a “suspicious” house fire in Cowdenbeath. The fire started around 1.30am on New Year’s Day at a house in Sinclair Gardens. All the people in the house thankfully escaped unhurt.
Det Sgt Graham Watson, of Police Scotland, said: “Thankfully, no one was injured as a result of this reckless act. Nevertheless, the consequences could have been far worse and we are treating this matter very seriously. Anyone who was in the Sinclair Gardens area at the time of the fire is asked to contact police immediately.
Similarly, anyone with any further information that can assist with our inquiries is also asked to come forward.”
This was a very serious incident and we would urge anyone with any information to contact Fife Police on 101.
