Office space was “totally gutted” in a possible arson attack at a new housing unit last night (Thursday).

Two teams from Hunslet Fire Station rushed out to two blazing container units at the Miller Homes site in Scampston Drive, East Ardsley, at 9.50pm.

Crew commander Carl Shuttleworth said: “Somebody had got in and set fire to at least one of the containers. One was totally gutted.”

He said that arson was “more than likley” the cause but could not confirm this because the damage is too bad to tell at the moment.

The container units were being used as offices. They were empty and nobody was injured as the crew tackled the blaze for around an hour.
