ARSONISTS set fire to a fire alarm in a block of flats. The fire melted wires and triggered the alarm at the 20 homes in Brooksbank Gardens off Victoria Road in Elland at 11pm on Sunday. Firefighters confined the fire to a perspex panel, but were unable to stop the alarm sounding and had to call out an engineer. Watch manager Rodger Binns said: "The fire damaged the wires and so registered a fault on the system which meant we were unable to turn it off. It was still going off when we left."
