There was a fire at Crabtrees Football Club at approximately 4.45pm yesterday afternoon; it is believed to be arson.  We are working closely with the club to make the site safe and to return the pitch to a useable ground.

The site is currently closed for public use as there is lots of debris on site – the fire started in the spectators’ shed and quickly spread across the field as the grass is so dry.  The fire came dangerously close to houses.
