Five fire crews tackle Carcroft farm fire

Five fire engines- and around 25 firefighters- have been tackling a blaze involving an agricultural building in Carcroft.

The blaze on Askern Road broke out at around 6.30pm on Friday (27 April). The building was an open sided barn containing scrap timber.

Crews worked quickly to tackle the fire as the building was close to some terraced houses. They used hose reels to extinguish the blaze and started coming away from the scene shortly before 8pm.

It’s thought the fire was started deliberately.
