A spokesman for the fire service said: “The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service was alerted at 6.28pm on Monday, August 27 to reports of a building fire in Bonnybridge.

“Operations Control mobilised two fire engines to Main Street, where firefighters extinguished a fire within a single-storey building.
