Compound hit by fire

Have your say

A FORMER building supplies compound has been left burnt out after a suspicious fire began in one of its bricked-up bays.

Firefighters from Sunderland west, south and central fire stations were called to the disused Starks building in Hunt Street, Shiney Row, at 9pm yesterday, with crews spending almost two hours at the site putting out the fire.

The owner is today due to start to clear the site to reduce the risk of further blazes.
