A suspicious fire in Goldthorpe last night is being investigated by police.

Fire crews from Dearne and Adwick stations were called to reports of a fire in a terraced house in Manor Avenue just before 11.30pm.

They had to break in to the property and found a blaze in one of the upstairs bedrooms.

There was no-one in the house at the time and a fire service spokesman said it was being treated as an arson investigation.
