Flat blaze in Parkgate among Easter weekend fires

FIREFIGHTERS were called to a deliberate blaze at a flat in Parkgate.

Crews attended a ground floor property in Ryan Place shortly before 9am on Friday and were at the scene for nearly three hours.

A wheelie bin fire in West Melton on Friday spread to fencing and guttering on the outside of a house.

Firefighters attended Grove Road at 5.10pm and a service spokeswoman said the cause of the blaze was unknown.

A bonfire in Foljambe Road, East Dene, spread to a garage and shed shortly after 9pm on Sunday.

An old sofa and household rubbish were set alight on Simmonite Road in Kimberworth on Monday night.

The incident, at 9.30pm, was followed by another deliberate fire at 10.50pm on nearby Fenton Road, where wooden pallets had been set on fire.
