Scrapyard blaze ‘was not arson’

ARSON has been ruled out as a potential cause of a blaze at a scrapyard.

Fire ripped through Rush Green Motors, on the B656 London Road in Langley, in the early hours of last Wednesday.

Fire investigators are trying to work out what caused the blaze, but police have this week said arsonists are not to blame.

A spokeswoman for Hertfordshire Constabulary told the Welwyn Hatfield Times: “At the moment there is no evidence to suggest it is suspicious.

“It looks like it was accidental.”
