Three teenagers have been arrested in connection with a large disturbance in which a man was assaulted.
Police and fire crews were called after a huge bonfire was started just off a footpath near Blacklock Crescent and Glenconnor Drive – yards away from wooden houses.
Flames were then seen soaring 10 feet into the air.
It is understood that one man was spotted covered in blood on Pitkerro Drive, yards away from where the fire was started.
One resident, who declined to be named for fear of reprisals, said: “There was a group of about 15 teenagers, both boys and girls. There was lots of shouting and screaming – the place was like a war zone.”
Michele Thompson, 52, who has recently moved into the area, said she felt the heat from the flames from inside her home.
She said: “I called 999 but they were already aware of the situation. The flames were at least 10 feet into the air.
“The properties around here are all wooden, so it’s lucky nothing worse happened.
“I could actually feel the heat from inside my house, the smoke came right through to my living room.”
A spokeswoman for the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service confirmed one crew was dispatched at 9.24pm on Sunday to attend a “large bonfire”.
Police said three 15-year old boys have been traced and charged with offences including assault and threatening and abusive behaviour.
Longhaugh locality inspector Chris Boath said: “Behaviour of this kind will not be tolerated, and we will continue to have an increased presence in those areas.
“I would again ask parents and carers to help us by keeping track of your children and knowing where they are and what they are up to.
“I’m sure that your children can be out enjoying themselves without causing problems to others, but if they do we will deal with them appropriately.”
