An early morning fire which engulfed an Indian restaurant in the Bonnybridge area looks like it has been set deliberately.

The Underwood Lockhouse, in Seabegs Road, Allandale, was well alight when fire appliances arrived just after 4 a.m. this morning and around 15 firefighters were reportedly still battling the blaze after 10 a.m.

A Scottish Fire Service spokesman said: “Crews will be there for some time yet, damping down the building.”

Fire crews are also assisting police officers to find out what caused the fire.

A Police Scotland spokeswoman confirmed the fire was being treated as suspicious.
