An early morning blaze at a children’s nursery is thought to have been started deliberately.

Fire crews from Dearne and Rotherham stations dealt with the fire that was spotted at around 1.30am this morning at premises on Fitzwilliam Street at Swinton.

The main playroom was destroyed with smoke damage to the rest of the building.

Firefighters spent an hour-and-a-half quelling the blaze.
