Two fire crews were called out to a blaze near York which left a bedroom badly damaged.
Acomb and York firefighters responded to a call at 8.25pm on Monday (March 26) to a detached bungalow in Copmanthorpe.
They extinguished the fire before ventilating the property with a fan. The fire was thought to have started in overheating equipment in the bedroom.
Later, at 9.07pm a York crew extinguished a rubbish fire in the play area of a children’s park off Dodsworth Avenue using a bucket of water.
The fire was started deliberately.
