Firefighters' busy New Year

FIREFIGHTERS tackled several incidents over the New Year, including fires and crashes.

Dearne station staff attended a van fire on High Street, Thurnscoe at 6.30pm on Saturday.

Staff left the scene around half-an-hour later — the blaze is thought to have been set deliberately.

Three crews from Rotherham, Maltby and Aston stations attended a house fire on Alpine Road, East Dene at midnight on Monday morning.

The accidental blaze had begun in a first-floor bedroom — no injuries were reported. Staff left the scene around one hour later.

Two teams from Edlington and Doncaster stations responded to a house fire at Victoria Road, Edlington at 12.20pm on Monday.

The property’s front door was ablaze — thought to be the result of a deliberate act. Staff left the scene at around 1.30pm.

And Edlington and Central stations responded to a one-car collision on Tickhill Road, Maltby at around 12.20am on Tuesday.

Staff rescued one person from the vehicle, leaving the scene at around 1am.
