A FIRE, which damaged a man’s home and destroyed two caravans, is thought to have been started deliberately.
Linda Mason, of Tudor Way, Thornhill Lees, lives next door to Clifford Bromley and kept her caravan on his drive, alongside Mr Bromley’s own caravan.
Mrs Mason was woken at around 4am on Wednesday by her neighbour, who said that the caravans were ablaze and that the fire brigade had been called.
She said she felt sick when she saw what was happening. She added: “They’ve been there for about 10 years, and we’ve never had any trouble.”
Mrs Mason and her husband, Jonathan, go away in the caravan five or six times a year. Their next holiday was due to be a trip to Skegness in two weeks.
A spokesman from Dewsbury fire station said that the two caravans had been completely destroyed and that the fire had spread to Mr Bromley’s garden shed and the gable end of his house.
A police spokesman said: “It is believed the fire was started deliberately and enquiries are continuing.”
