A blaze which badly damaged a flat-bed truck in Bolton Woods, Bradford, is being treated as arson.

Firefighters were called to a parking area behind houses in Mexborough Road at about 2am today.

A West Yorkshire Fire Service spokesman said the blaze was believed to have been started deliberately and police had been informed.

She said: “The van was round the back of the houses in a parking area.

“The van was up against three other cars so it was lucky it did not spread to any of those.”

Firefighters from Idle and Shipley tackled the blaze.
