INTRUDERS broke into an empty Huddersfield pub and tried to set it on fire.
They got into the Woolpack on Deighton Road in Deighton yesterday afternoon and started three fires.
Smoke was spotted at 4.15pm and firefighters from Huddersfield and Brighouse went to the scene.
But the fires had not taken proper hold and firefighters managed to douse them both upstairs and downstairs.
The pub has been empty for several months, since the last landlord left. Police are investigating the fire.
