Detectives are investigating after an unoccupied property on Ardoyne Road was deliberately set alight.

The fire at the mid-terrace house was discovered just before midnight (20 June) and was extinguished by the Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue Service.

Detective Sergeant Kennedy said: “Whilst the property is currently vacant, this arson attack placed the lives of those in the adjoining properties in danger. I am asking anyone with information to please get in touch with police by calling 101, quoting reference 2456 20/06/23.”
