An outdoor ski village in Sheffield has been struck by a second fire, days after the main building burnt down.

South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue said it received a call at about 05.15 BST after a wooden hut which controlled the ski lift at the top of the Sheffield Ski Village slope was alight.

The service said it believed the blaze had been started deliberately.

On Sunday the main building was destroyed after a fire, which is currently being investigated.

In March 2011 the adventure playground at the village was destroyed after a suspected arson attack.
