Police appeal after Northwich cupboard arson
POLICE are appealing for witnesses following a deliberate fire at a house in London Road, Northwich, yesterday.
Sometime between midnight and 6.20am on Wednesday September 18, a wooden cupboard in the rear porch of a house was deliberately set alight while the occupants were asleep in the house.
The fire caused considerable damage to the porch and the back door. A 23-year-old man from Northwich was arrested in connection with the incident and has since been released on police bail pending further enquiries.
DC Deborah Lack said: "Thankfully the fire didn′t spread to the rest of the house, but this could have been a very different story.
"I would urge anyone with information or who saw suspicious activity in the area at the time to contact police."
Anyone with information should contact DC Deborah Lack on 101 quoting incident number 92 of 18 September 2013.
Alternatively, information can be given anonymously by contacting Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
