The blaze covered 200sq metres of grass and undergrowth, with KFRS firefighters using an all-terrain vehicle to get to the blaze, and using a specialist fogging unit to suppress the flames.

The unit coats flames in a very fine mist to tackle the fire.

There were no reported injuries in the blaze, though crews stayed until 12.48am damping down the area.
