Family Escapes Arson Attack in Alton
Police investigating an arson attack in Alton are appealing for information and witnesses.
At around half past midnight on Tuesday December 13 a van was set alight on the driveway of a property in Geale’s Crescent. The fire then spread to a car also on the driveway and then to the house.
Two adults and children were in the property at the time of the fire. They all managed to escape unharmed.
Police would like to hear from anyone who was in the area at the time or who has information about the attack.
Detective Constable Iain Turner is investigating and said: “Thankfully everyone managed to leave the property safely but this fire could have ended as a dreadful tragedy.
“As it is, a family has lost its home just before Christmas and is dealing with the trauma of what has happened. I’d appeal to anyone who knows who is responsible to get in touch.”
Anyone with information is asked to contact Alton CID on 101 or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
