Roof fire in Thurlby caused accidentally

Firefighters from Bourne and Market Deeping attended a roof fire in Thurlby just days before the Easter bank holiday weekend.

It happened at a house in Northorpe shortly before 11.45am last Monday.

The fire was put out by a builder with a water hose by the time crews arrived who were left to inspect the building.

A Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue spokesman said the cause was accidental.
