A joint police and fire investigation into the cause of a fire at a disused former social club in Inkersall has concluded the most likely cause to be deliberate.

Upon arrival fire crews discovered a single storey building well alight. Firefighters wearing breathing apparatus used hose reel jets, main jets and an aerial ladder platform to extinguish the fire.

Final fire crews left the scene at 08.30 hours the following morning (Sunday 28 April) but later returned to reinspect the site and check for hot spots.

No one was in the building at the time of the fire.
