A fire has broken out at the former Kitty’s nightclub in Fife for the third time this year.

Firefighters raced to the scene on Hunter Street in Kirkcaldy on Sunday afternoon after being alerted to the blaze shortly before 3pm.

No one was injured as a result of the fire, SFRS confirmed.

Fires previously broke out at the former nightspot in August and March of this year.

The venue closed in 2019 and plans were approved by Fife Council to turn the building into flats.

However, the plans were withdrawn and the property has been put on the market again as a nightclub or redevelopment opportunity.

A Scottish Fire and Rescue Service spokesperson said: “We were alerted at 2.46pm on Sunday, September 3 to reports of a building fire on Hunter Street, Kirkcaldy.

“Operations Control mobilised six appliances and two height appliances to the scene.

“There are no reported casualties.

“Crews remain in attendance.”

Police Scotland have been contacted for comment.
