Man Arrested Over Southampton Arson
Police in Southampton, investigating an arson, have arrested a 40-year-old man from the cit on suspicion of arson with intent to endanger life.
It's after the front door of a house in Jessamine Road, Coxford, was set alight at around 2.15am Wednesday, September 5.
A 50-year-old woman, 28-year-old man, a 19-year-old woman and a young baby were in the house at the time. They all escaped safely, and no one was hurt.
The man, the younger woman and child were taken to Southampton General Hospital as a precaution to be checked for smoke inhalation.
