The Sheffield Star has reported that fire chiefs in Sheffield and South Yorkshire are finally bringing down the number of arson attacks in the area. Initial figures suggest that the number of fires that were started deliberately across the UK dropped significantly last year compared with the previous year.
Arson Attacks Falling in South Yorkshire
According to the latest figures, arson attacks at homes, buildings and on cars have fallen from 753 in 2013 to 619 up until November 2014. In addition, the number of minor fires started in bins and involving rubbish or grass has dropped from 2,982 to 2,382. As rubbish removal Sheffield experts, it’s encouraging to hear that arson attacks are falling, especially in the instances where rubbish and bins are being set fire to. It’s a real shame that people see rubbish as an opportunity to commit arson, and we make it our mission to ensure that rubbish is removed from sites all over South Yorkshire, including Sheffield, Rotherham, Doncaster and Barnsley.
The Chief fire officer of South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue, Jamie Courtney, said: “We have a number of arson reduction projects which are working quite well and the number of deliberate fires is reducing – we will never get rid of them completely.”
Arson Attack on Rubbish Pile in Rotherham
Just last week, fire fighters were called to a fire at a disused council depot in Sheffield, for the second time in only four days. Fire crews managed to out the flames in the building on Gayton Road, Pitsmoor, and a police investigation will follow. Fire fighters were also called to an arson attack the week before after a pile of rubbish was deliberately set alight on Fenton Way in Rotherham.

Here at Clearance and Clean Up, our rubbish removal Sheffield services are available to anyone who has unwanted rubbish, garden trimmings and other unwanted objects.
