Firefighters were called out to deal with an early morning flat fire at Parkgate.

The blaze on Barbers Avenue at 12.40am on Sunday was started deliberately, said a South Yorkshire Fire Service spokeswoman, but there were no injuries.

Two fire crews from Rotherham attended and were at the first floor premises until 2.30am, clearing smoke.

A police investigation is ongoing.
