FIREFIGHTERS from Penarth station were called to deal with, what is thought to be, a ‘deliberate’ fire at a privately-owned garage near Headlands School in Penarth yesterday evening.

The fire took place at St Augustine’s Crescent, despite previous reports the fire happened at the school.

Pictures taken of the fire show significant damage caused to the garage.
