Suspected arson

Grimsby: Appeal for witnesses and information

12 Nov 2017

We were called shortly after 3.00pm yesterday 11 November 2017 to a report of suspected arson at a house on Rutland Street in Grimsby.

It's believed the property had been entered and then set alight. Houses near the property were evacuated as a precaution. No-one was in the house at the time, and no-one else was hurt.

Humberside Fire and Rescue Service quickly extinguished the fire but the property had suffered substantial damage. 

We would like anyone who may have seen any suspicious activity in the area at the time, or who may have any information to contact us on 101 quoting log 312 of 11/11/17 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
