Staff at a large Amazon warehouse have been evacuated after a fire broken out at the fulfillment centre.

Firefighters have rushed to Fife's Amazon site near Duloch, following reports of a fire at around 9.30pm on Thursday.

The building has been evacuated as crews from two fire stations fight the blaze.

They are working with four breathing apparatus, two hose reel jets, two thermal cameras and using height appliances to inspect the roof.

It is believed the fire is on the second floor.

A spokesperson for the service told The Courier: "The building has been evacuated. Crews are there from Dunfermline, Lochgelly, and the height appliance is from Kirkcaldy.”

The warehouse is the size of around 14 football pitches and home to more than one million items.

The fire service has also reported that nobody has been injured in the incident.

They say the fire has been located and crews are working to extinguish the flames.
