Fire crews were called out to two Dearne fires started deliberately on the same evening.

A blaze at a detached brick garage on Hill Street, Elsecar, was dealt with by Tankersley firefighters late last night.

They attended just before 11.30pm and managed to quell the fire before it spread.

The same night, around 11pm, grass was set alight off Highthorn Road at Kilnhurst, and took an hour for crews from Cusworth station to extinguish.
