Arsonists keep fire crews busy

ARSONISTS started three blazes by setting fire to piles of rubbish overnight.

Three fire crews had to battle the blazes in the separate incidents.

The first fire was on New Orchard Lane in Thurcroft where a crew from Maltby spent just over half an hour after being called out at 7.45pm yesterday.

At 8.45pm, a fire crew from Aston was called to tackle a fire on Gray Avenue in Swallownest which they spent 20 minutes bringing under control.

Then, at 9pm, a crew from Rotherham, was called out to a deliberately-ignited rubbish fire on Chapel Walk in Masbrough. Firemen spent 30 minutes at the scene.
