A spokesperson for South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue said: “The fire was out by 3.34pm and the occupiers were advised not to use the fire again until they’d had the chimney swept.” 

Firefighters from Elm Lane and Parkway were also called to Droppingwell Road, Kimberworth, at 4.24pm on Saturday to tackle a caravan “fully involved in fire”. 

The spokesperson siad they had left the scene at 5.11pm and the fire was also thought to have been started deliberately.

They left the scene of the fire, which was classed as deliberate, at 1.58pm.
