Converted shed catches fire

Houses had to be evacuated in Sheffield over the weekend after a shed caught fire.

It’s thought that the shed- which had been converted into a bar- contained an acetylene cylinder, prompting crews to evacuate neighbours as a precaution.

Luckily, the cylinder was found to have not been involved in the fire and Rivelin firefighters safely put out the blaze using a hose reel.

The fire started on Dudley Road, Sheffield at around 5.15pm on Saturday and is thought to have started accidentally.
