Kevin Blair Dunbar Fire crew Commandar tretires after 33 years.

Dunbar’s retiring fire chief has told how gate-crashing the firemen’s ball on a night out led to him spending 33 years in the service.

In that time, Kevin Blair (55), who rose through the ranks to watch manager, has been directly involved in some of the area’s major incidents including blazes which destroyed Dunbar Parish Church and the former Bellevue Hotel.

His crew also made worldwide headlines when they managed to rescue a new born kitten which fell down a four inch pipe at a Dunbar house.
