Then at 11.56pm, Malton firefighters were called to a fire in a derelict building on Bazeleys Lane, Norton.
A North Yorkshire Fire & Rescue Service spokesperson said: “On arrival they found one derelict building well alight.
“Crews used main jets, hose reel jets and lighting to extinguish the fire and prevent spread.”
