Attempted arson of wooden home
Avon & Somerset Police are appealing to the public for help after a serious incident in Minehead. Several packages were set alight and hurled onto the roof of a wooden bungalow in Glenmore Road, Minehead. The incident happened at about 11.45pm on Friday 31 May.
Thankfully the occupants heard the objects land on the roof and the fire went out before any damage was caused. This could have been a very serious incident. If the occupants had not heard the packages being thrown onto the roof, there could well have been fatalities.
Police believe that flaming packages were thrown from a lane behind the property.
Officers have carried out house to house enquiries in the area and local householders are being given home security advice.
Anyone who saw anything suspicious in the area or who has any other information which could help is asked to get in touch through www.avonandsomerset.police.uk/contact, or by calling 101, quoting reference 5219121255
