Fire leads to police probe

Have your say

A FIRE call turned into a police investigation yesterday after a Doncaster house came under suspicion as a cannabis factory.

The alarm was raised on Thursday lunchtime after smoke was seen pouring from the outside of a house in Cantley Lane, Bessacarr.

Fire crews found a fuse box had ignited and the flames were extinguished.

The house was smoke-logged but when the firefighters broke in there appeared to be nobody in the premises.

A report was passed on to South Yorkshire Police who are carrying out enquiries.
