Police Investigate Suspected Arson In Southport

Fire 'deliberately lit'

Police Investigate Suspected Arson In Southport

Police are investigating a suspicious house fire in Southport overnight.

Emergency crews were called to a home on Mildred Street around 7:20pm on Tuesday, after reports of a fire on the ground level of the structure.

The three occupants escaped unharmed while firefighters managed to extinguish the blaze before it could cause any significant damage to the home.

Fire investigators were then called to the scene, and preliminary information indicates the fire, which started in a storage space under the living quarters, was deliberately lit using an accelerant.

Investigations continue.
