A woman has been injured in a suspected gas explosion at her house in Rosyth.

Her partner and 10-year-old son were in the house at around 7.35pm when the incident occurred in Sherbrooke Road, causing “substantial” damage.

The woman was attended to by neighbours before being taken to hospital.

A joint investigation by police and the fire service has been launched. In a statement, police ruled out the incident as suspicious.

A Police Scotland spokesman said: “There’s nothing apparently suspicious at this time. There is a joint investigation with ourselves and the fire service.

“There were three people in the house - a male, a female and a ten-year-old child - and one occupant, the female, has been taken to hospital.

“It doesn’t appear to have been a gas leak - it appears to have been some kind of appliance involved.”
