Detectives in Coleraine are investigating the circumstances surrounding a fire at a flat in Parker Avenue, Portrush, in the early hours of Thursday 18th June.

The incident was reported to police at around 1.25am on Thursday morning. Officers attended the scene a short time later where NIFRS personnel had extinguished the fire in the first floor flat which was extensively smoke damaged as a result. An examination of the scene suggested the fire was started deliberately and the incident is therefore being treated as arson. No-one was present in the flat at the time of the incident but the lives of nearby neighbours were put at risk by the reckless actions of the person or persons responsible for starting the fire.

Enquiries into the incident are ongoing and anyone with any information which could assist with the investigation is asked to contact detectives in Coleraine on 101 quoting reference number 103 18/06/20. Information can also be submitted online using our non-emergency reporting form via http://www.psni.police.uk/makeareport/. You can also contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or online at http://crimestoppers-uk.org/.
