Car fire spread to home

FIRE crews attended two fires that were suspected arson, on Sunday night and the early hours of Monday morning.

At 2.15am today, people were evacuated from a home at Arundel Gardens, Royston, after a blaze spread from a car to a nearby property.

Firefighters took an hour and a half to extinguish the fire and make the property safe.

At 8.30pm last night, a Rover car was destroyed after it was set alight at Charles Street, but the fire was contained.
