Three fires extinguished

FIRE crews were called out to three grass and gorse fires in Scarborough yesterday.

The blazes took place on land in Deepdale Avenue, near South Cliff Golf Club, North Bay Promenade, and just below the Sea Life Centre in Scalby Mills.

A spokesman for North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue said firefighters from Scarborough and Malton quickly extinguished the fires, which are all believed to have been started deliberately.
