A SMALL fire was started in a communal lobby of flats on Sunday morning. Police were called to Somerby Garth, on the Welland Estate, at 5.10am, after reports of smoke on the second floor. They used water buckets to put out the small fire. A fire spokesman said: “Although it was a fairly small fire, due to the location it could have potentially caused more damage.” The police are investigating. If you have any information call 101.
