Yobs set tree on fire in Accrington
12:00pm Monday 1st October 2012 in News
A TREE was deliberately set on fire in the car park of Accrington’s Matalan store.
Fire crews from Hyndburn attended the call out at around 7.30pm on Saturday evening.
Crew Manager Lee Cook said: “We had a small rubbish fire in a tree in the car park at Matalan on Hyndburn Road at around 7.30pm. We used a hose reel to extinguish the fire.
“It would appear that the fire had been started deliberately. There were a few bread trays that looked to have been turned into a small bonfire and then ignited.
“There were a few children in the area but when questioned, no one saw anything.”
The fire service were at the scene for around 20 minutes.
