Police in Huddersfield are appealing for witnesses following a potentially suspicious fire at a health centre in Birkby.
While the cause of the fire has not yet been determined a rear window at the property was damaged. The fire itself caused substantial damage to an office at the rear of the building.
This incident has had a significant impact on the staff and patients at the health centre due to the damage caused. While the cause of the fire has yet to be determined we are treating it as potentially suspicious.
We would urge anyone who was in the area late on Sunday night and saw any suspicious people, or vehicles to contact us. Enquiries are ongoing.
