Detectives are appealing for information following the report of an arson attack on a property in the Dunlea Vale area of Dungannon this afternoon (Saturday).
Inspector Knipe said: “We received a report of a fire at a house just after 4.30pm
“Luckily, there was no one home at the time of the incident.
“This fire could have resulted in serious injuries, even loss of life and could easily have spread to the adjoining properties.
“We are treating this as arson with intent to endanger life and I am asking anyone with information, or who noticed any suspicious activity around that time, to contact us on 101 quoting reference number 1494 of 17/07/21.”
