Appeal after attempt to set wooden home on fire – Minehead

A fire engine

We’re asking for information after lighted packages were thrown onto the roof of a wooden bungalow in Glenmore Road, Minehead.

It happened at about 11.45pm on Friday 31 May. Thankfully the householders heard the objects land on the roof and the fire went out before any damage was caused.

We think the items were thrown from a lane behind the property.

Officers have carried out house-to-house enquiries in the area and the householders are being given home security advice.

If you saw anything suspicious in the area or have any other information which could help, get in touch, quoting reference 5219121255.

If you can help, please call 101 and give the call handler the reference number 5219121255
