Treehouse set on fire in St Albans

A TREEHOUSE was set on fire in a woodland on Sunday afternoon.

Both pumps from St Albans fire station were called to the area of woodland next to Batchwood Golf Course in St Albans at 3pm.

Access to the scene proved difficult and the firefighters had to set up a water shuttle in order to douse the flames, which took around 45 minutes to put out. The cause was logged as doubtful.
