Deliberate fire in derelict outbuilding

THE fire brigade were called out to tackle a fire in a derelict outbuilding which is thought to have been started deliberately on Saturday night.

An appliance from Whitby and one from Lythe attended the incident on The Garth, off White Leys Road at around 10.45pm.

They used a hose reel and breathing apparatus to put out the fire which was one square metre and left the scene 45 minutes later.
