Police are treating a blaze in outbuildings close to a Kirk Hallam pub last night (Friday) as arson.
Firefighters were called to the Nottingham Castle pub in Kenilworth Drive at about 1.50am.
There has been a history of fires being deliberately started in the pub’s former skittles alley over the last year or so.
Firefighters believe an accelerant was used to start the blaze.
Anyone with information should call police on 101.
