A community centre in Fife has been damaged after a fire broke out in the premises late last night (17th April).
Fire crews were called to the Bowhill Club on Station Road, Cardenden, at 11.30pm by local police officers, reports STV.
Firefighters were able to control the flames, which started in the basement, in just over an hour before leaving the site.
A spokesman for Fife Fire and Rescue Service revealed that firefighters were required to remove gas cylinders from the building as part of the operation.
Nobody was injured in the blaze, with the extent of the damage currently unknown.
A 'suitable and sufficient' fire risk assessment must be conducted on all commercial properties in Scotland under the Fire (Scotland) Act 2005.
If this fire risk assessment is judged to have not been carried out to a suitable extent, the Duty Holder for the establishment can face up to two years in prison or an unlimited fine.
An investigation has been launched into the cause of the fire.
