The occupants as well as their neighbours were awoken by the Henderson Road building’s blaring smoke alarms about 1.30am.

They discovered a fire that had started to spread to the roofline at the front of their home.

Police say that an accelerant had been poured on the porch and a box with a large number of shoes prior to the fire.
