West Coast house fire treated as arson

NZ NewswireNZ Newswire 24/05/2016

A fire that engulfed a family home on the West Coast looks deliberate, investigators say.

The blaze on Firth Street in Cobden appears to have started in a car before spreading to a house nearby on Monday night.

The family inside, including two young children, managed to escape but there was significant damage to both the car and the home.

Fire investigators on Tuesday said it appeared the vehicle was deliberately set on fire at about 6.15pm and are asking for anyone who may have been in the area to come forward.
