Firefighters were called out to Sheffield’s former Ski Village after another arson attack.

The blaze on Vale Road, Parkwood Springs, was discovered at 9.20pm on Monday.

Crews called out to deal with the incident found two containers full of tyres engulfed in flames.

The derelict ski village has been blighted by arson attacks and vandalism attacks since it was destroyed in another blaze in April 2012.

Firefighters spent two hours at the scene extinguishing the flames, which generated plumes of thick black smoke.

Police were informed of the incident.

Anyone with information about who was responsible for the blaze should call South Yorkshire Police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
