Fire caused by out-of-control log burner

AN OUT-of-control log burner started a fire in Wath on Saturday.

Firefighters from Dearne and Rotherham stations were called to Sandymount Road at 6.15pm and were at the scene for around half-an-hour, a spokeswoman for South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue said.

"There were no injuries and the fire was started by a log burner accidentally," she added.
