Aylsham: Arrest After Warehouse Fire

4 October 2012, 15:10

A man's been arrested after a big fire in Aylsham in Norfolk earlier this year.

The Aylsham Bathroom and Kitchen Centre on Burgh Road was destroyed by fire on the evening of Wednesday 27 June 2012. The incident is being treated as suspicious and an investigation is underway to establish the circumstances leading up to the fire.

Detective Sergeant Darren Reade said, "As part of our inquiries, we are appealing for witnesses or anyone with information to come forward. This was a huge blaze on the day of the Royal Norfolk Show which was attended by all emergency services and the A140 was closed whilst the fire was tackled, so I would hope that although this happened three months ago, anyone who was in the area may remember what they saw or heard and will come forward to assist our investigation."

A 39-year-old man from the Reepham area has been arrested in connection with this incident and has been released on police bail pending further inquiries.

Anyone with information about this fire should contact Great Yarmouth CID on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
