Police investigating an arson attack in south Belfast early this morning (Tuesday, 21st January) are appealing for witnesses and information.

Inspector Green said: “Police were made aware of a fire at commercial premises in the University Road area of south Belfast at around 1.10 am this morning.

“Officers attended immediately and evacuated nearby properties and closed a number of roads.

“NIFRS personnel and police officers have been in attendance throughout the night and remain at the scene this morning.

“At this stage the fire is being treated as a deliberate ignition and our enquiries are continuing.

“I want to appeal to anyone who was in the University Road area of the town prior to, or around the time the fire was reported to jog their memory and think if they saw any suspicious activity, including anyone acting in a suspicious manner.

“If you have any information about this please call police in Belfast on the non-emergency number 101, quoting reference number 42 of 21/01/20.”

Alternatively, information can also be given anonymously through the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
