Fire at Rotherham outbuilding was deliberate

ARSONISTS started a fire at an outbuilding in the town centre on Saturday morning.

Firefighters from Rotherham station were called to Mansfield Road just before 6am and were at the scene for about 40 minutes, a spokesman for South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue said.

They used hose reels to put out the fire, he added.

The following day, firefighters from Dearne station were called to a deliberate rubbish fire on Keble Martin Way, Wath, at 8.20pm and remained at the scene for around 15 minutes, said the spokesman.

A bin fire in Rotherham town centre in the early hours of this morning was also started deliberately.

Firefighters from Rotherham station were called to Riverside Precinct at 1am and spent around 15 minutes tackling the blaze with hose reels, said the spokesman.
