Youths blamed for setting bins on fire in York
Bins were set on fire in the early hours in York today (Saturday).
Firefighters were called to an industrial bin on fire in Lawrence Street at 2.34am.
A North Yorkshire Fire & Rescue Service spokesperson said: “The York crew extinguished this using a hose reel.
“The cause is thought to have been deliberate after police CCTV was a number of youths in the area prior to the fire starting.”
A few minutes later, at 2.48am, they were called to the nearby Olympian Court to another industrial bin fire.
They put out the flames using a hose reel.
