12:00pm Thursday 21st February 2013 in News
A fire crew tackled a small blaze at Marley Stadium after someone deliberately set waste materials alight.
The Keighley station crew responded to the incident at 8.45pm on Saturday.
Crew commander, David Knox, said: “There’s some wasteland at the back of the grounds near the river. The land is being managed and some trees have been cut down. Someone had set fire to the wood and shrubs.
“It wasn’t too bad – just a small bonfire really. But it took us half-an-hour to deal with because it was quite some distance from the road.”
