Arsonist targets Rotherham flat

AN empty flat was deliberately set on fire in Rotherham yesterday evening.

Three fire crews were called to the premises on Wharncliffe Hill at 7.30pm, spending just under an hour at the scene.

A spokeswoman for South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue said that no one was injured and the flat was vacant.
