A house in Denny has been destroyed after a fire broke out in its roof space.

Firefighters tackled the blaze, which started just before 21:00 on Monday in Carron Valley.

The home owners and their dog escaped from the building after being alerted by a smoke alarm.

Scottish Fire and Rescue Service has launched an investigation into the cause of the blaze, although it is not believed to be suspicious.

Station manager Dave Wishart said: "Firefighters were deployed in strategic positions surrounding the building with high-pressure jets and worked through the night to bring the incident to a safe conclusion.

"Unfortunately the intensity of the fire meant the house was completely destroyed."

"The home owners became aware of the fire quickly and had a working smoke alarm.

"This helped them to get themselves and their dog out safely."
