Fire raisers wreck van
FIREFIGHTERS had to act quickly to stop a van fire spreading to nearby homes. Two fire engines from Huddersfield were called to Dog Kennel Bank in Longley after a large white Transit van went up in flames at about 2.20am yesterday. A group of residents had sounded the alarm and were outside their homes when the crews arrived. The van was parked next to a fence which caught fire. But the firefighters worked for about an hour to douse the blaze before it spread. Police are investigating the incident, which is believed to have been deliberate.
