Charity's Crowland warehouse damaged by fire

A fire has caused severe damage to part of a warehouse used to store furniture by a cancer charity in Lincolnshire.

The fire was started at a lean-to building used by Crowland Cancer Fund on Crease Drove on Sunday evening.

The outbuilding was badly damaged and the adjoining warehouse suffered "moderate" smoke damage.

Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue said the cause of the fire was deliberate. Crews were at the scene for three hours to ensure the fire did not re-ignite.

Chairman of the charity Frank Barratt said his team needed to assess the amount of damage and see what could be salvaged.

He said: "We're trying now to find the time to get around there and sort things out."
