A caravan was destroyed in a speculated arson attack near Camborne during the early hours of this morning.

The fire started at around 4 am on Friday, October 29, at Tuckingmill, a small settlement within Pool and Camborne.

Three different people contacted Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service at 4.12 am and reported that a caravan had caught fire on Chapel Lane in the village.

Two fire service vehicles from Tolvaddon Community Fire Station rushed to the scene.

The caravan was “well alight” when the fire team arrived.

A high-pressure hose was used to put it out before it could grow and cause further damage to the area.

However, the caravan was destroyed, and according to CFRS, it added that it is now a suspected arson that the police will investigate.

A spokesperson for the service said: “On arrival, crews found one caravan well alight and extinguished the fire using a high-pressure hose reel. The fire destroyed the caravan and is suspected to be arson.

“Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 101 quoting log 110 of 29/10/21 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
