Arsonists blamed for Somersham blaze

FIREFIGHTERS said arsonists started a fire in a large mobile home opposite Holly Farm, in Colne Road, Somersham, last night (Tuesday).

The blaze, to which appliances from St Ives and Chatteris were called at 7.20pm, took firefighters, using hoses and wearing breathing apparatus, an hour to put out.

Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service said the caravan had been set on fire deliberately.
