Police are appealing for information after a report of a fire in our area.
The incident occurred on Dallas Court in Hemlington at around 6:25pm on Tuesday.
A conifer tree was set alight in the garden of a house on Dallas Court, which could have spread to the nearby house.
Damage was caused to guttering and a window due to the heat.
At the time of the fire a family was at home but were fortunately able to escape unharmed.
A 14-year-old boy has been arrested in connection with the incident and has been released on police bail whilst enquiries continue.
Anyone with information is asked to call Cleveland Police on the non-emergency number 101.
Over 300 properties have been hit by an unplanned power cut near Guisborough.
The power outage on Thursday affected many homes along The Avenue, Hutton Lane, and other neighbouring roads, with the Northern Powergrid map showing blackout issues as far away as Newton under Roseberry.
The power cut is believed to have affected around 360 properties, and came as power outages also affect a number of homes in the Redcar area.
Northern Powergrid said that the power cut was caused by an unexpected problem with the cables and equipment that serve the area.
Power was restored a short time later.
It's been announced that a church service for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is to be held in Guisborough.
A Service of Remembrance and Thanksgiving for the life of Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II will take place at the Church of St Nicholas in Guisborough tomorrow at 3pm.
All are welcome to attend the service, which will be led by the Bishop of Whitby, the Right Reverend Paul Ferguson.
Following the announcement that Monday will be an official Bank Holiday, many public buildings will close, but all condolence books in Redcar and Cleveland will re-open on Tuesday until 5 pm, which is the last day as per the national protocol.
On Monday, Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council’s buildings will close and all but key and critical services will be stood down to enable people to spend time with family on the day of the Queen’s funeral.
The Dunsdale Household and Recycling Centre will open as normal at 8am, but will close early, at 3pm. There remains a requirement to book a slot before attending.
