A man has been treated for smoke inhalation after a fire broke out in a row of terraced houses.
Six fire engines were called to the scene in Stoneywood, Denny, after the blaze spread to neighbouring properties.
The fire initially broke out in a first-floor cupboard at around 3pm on Thursday before spreading into the roof space.
A specialist high-reach platform from Dunfermline was dispatched to help contain the fire as firefighters wearing breathing apparatus put out the flames.
One man was treated for smoke inhalation by paramedics at the scene, but was not in a life-threatening condition.
A fire service spokesman said the cause of the blaze was being investigated.

Keep combustible materials away from ignition sources in cupboards.
