Five fire crews fight Tinsley house blaze

Five fire engines tackled a house fire in Sheffield in the early hours of Sunday (23 October).

Parkway, Rotherham and Elm Lane fire stations all attended the blaze on Norborough Road, Tinsley at around 00.15am.

The house was well alight, but fortunately everyone was accounted for and no one was hurt. Some neighbouring properties were evacuated as a precaution.

Firefighters wearing breathing apparatus used hose reels to tackle the fire. A turntable ladder was also used to fight the fire from above and thermal imaging cameras were used to search for hot spots.

Crews left the scene at around 8am.

An investigation later on Sunday found that the fire was probably started deliberately.
