Police are investigating a Scarborough caravan blaze, which is believed to have been started deliberately.

Fire fighters raced to Auborough Street at 7.48pm on Wednesday February 27, after reports that a caravan was on fire in the middle of the road.

When the crew arrived, they extinguished the flames using two hose reel jets, and a thermal imaging camera was used to deal with the fire.

The caravan suffered 80 per cent fire damage in the blaze, and North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue has stated that they believe the fire was started on purpose.

North Yorkshire Police are now appealing for anybody with any information about the incident to contact them on 101, quoting reference number 12130032911.
