By Cam Lucadou-Wells

Police are investigating a suspicious fire at a vacant house on Mather Road, Keysborough.

Neighbours woke to the sound of breaking glass at the blaze about 2am on 4 July, Detective Acting Sergeant Kim Alp of Greater Dandenong CIU said.

The site, which was surrounded by a wire security fence, was due for demolition that day, she said. It was suspected to contain asbestos.

A Noble Park CFA crew attended and extinguished the fire.

Detectives were investigating if squatters at the house may have been involved, Det Sgt Alp said.
