Arsonists torch derelict buildings in March

ARSONISTS torched two derelict buildings in March yesterday.

One crew from March and one crew from Chatteris were called to a fire in a derelict workshop in Gas Road at 2.25pm.

Firefighters arrived and extinguished the fire using one hose reel and returned to their station by 3.10pm.

A crew from both March and Chatteris were then called to another fire in Queens Street at 4.30pm.

The blaze affecting a disused highways depot was extinguished using small gear to cut away at sections. Crews returned to their stations by 5.20pm.
