Fosters Garden Centre

An investigation is under way after a huge fire broke out close to a Thrybergh garden centre. Five fire engines were called to the scene close to Fosters Garden Centre and its petrol station on Doncaster Road on Tuesday.

Crews were called just before 9pm and were at the scene for four hours.

Around 25 firefighters tackled the blaze and residents were advised to keep windows and doors closed.

A South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue spokesman said a storage building near to the garden centre, around 40 metres by 20 metres, was well alight.

He added: ?An investigation into the cause of the incident is under way.?
