Did you see anyone acting suspiciously in the Armstrong Street area last night?

An investigation has been launched following a suspected arson attack on New Chase House – a former school building in New Chase Court.

We were called to the area by Humberside Fire and Rescue Service at around 6.50pm last night (Friday, January 13) following reports of the fire.

Road closures were put in place between Rendle Street and Gilbey Road and lifted at around 10.30pm.

The fire is believed to be suspicious following initial investigations last night.

Crime Scene Investigation teams will be joining investigators from the fire service at the site shortly to conduct further enquiries.

Anyone with information is asked to call 101, quoting log number 456 of January 13.
