A shed near an empty house in Balby, Doncaster, went up in flames last night.

Fire crews from Doncaster station were called to St Catherine’s Avenue just before 11pm and found the shed behind an unoccupied property was well alight.

They spent 20 minutes putting it out and preventing the fire spreading to the house. A spokesman said it had been started deliberately.
