A FIRE at a disused section of the former Leeds Road Hospital building in Bradford is being treated as a suspected arson.

Two crews from Bradford fire station were called to Maudsley Street at around 3.20pm on Saturday.

The other section of the building, used as a Marie Curie Hospice, was unaffected as the fire did not spread. There were a couple of small fires in the derelict section too.

No-one was injured or suffered from smoke inhalation in the incident.

Crew Commander Chris Hargreaves, of Bradford Fire Station, said: "The building was vandalised, windows were smashed.

"The fire was identified quickly and crews got there before it became a more serious matter.

"It is being treated as a suspected arson."
