Penzance bin fires 'put lives at risk'

Firefighters are warning arsonists who set six wheelie bins alight in a Cornwall town that they are putting lives at risk.

The latest fire, at the Greenmarket in Penzance on 17 January, took a crew of six to extinguish.

A fire in December forced a day centre in the town to close for two days.

The fire service said a number of these attacks have caused damage to property and it is "only a matter of time" before someone is injured.

The fire service has appealed for anyone with information to contact them.
