“An arson attack on a residential home could result in a fatality and also could easily spread to neighbouring properties, endangering the homes and lives of neighbours.

“I would urge the community to come forward and help the PSNI with their investigations. If you think you saw something that could help find out who was responsible for this arson attack, call the PSNI on 101 or alternatively call the anonymous Crimestoppers number on 0800 555 111.”
