Fire crews attend several refuse fires

FIRE CREWS attended several deliberate refuse fires overnight.

One crew from Rotherham station was called to St Johns Road, East Dene, at around 7.30pm — staff spent 15 minutes putting out the fire.

Two crews from Dearne station attended Oak Road, Wath-upon-Dearne at around 8pm, when rubbish inside the derelict Oak Tree pub was ablaze.

Staff spent half-an-hour putting out the fire. The same pub was badly damaged by fire in June.

One team from Cudworth station attended Biscay Way, Wath-upon-Dearne, at around 8.20pm, leaving around half-an-hour later.

A crew from Rotherham station also attended a two-car fire on Glasshouse Lane, Kilnhurst at 2.45am.

The blaze began in a Citroen, spreading to a Ford Fiesta. The cause is currently unknown.
