Grass and rubbish torched in the Dearne Valley

ARSONISTS set light to grass and rubbish in the Dearne Valley last night.

Dearne firefighters were called out to a deliberate grass fire on Brookfields Way in Wath at 7.25pm and were at the scene for 40 minutes.

At 8.05pm, a Dearne crew were out again, this time to a rubbish fire on High Street in Mexborough. They spent almost half an hour at the scene.

Three fire crews from Dearne, Adwick and Doncaster stations were then dispatched to a rubbish fire on York Street in Thurnscoe at 8.35pm.

They were at the incident until just after 11pm.

A spokeswoman from South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue said all three fires were believed to have been started deliberately.
