Probe into house fire
West Pilbara Detectives are seeking information about a house fire they believe was deliberately lit in the Karratha suburb of Nickol at the weekend.
Suspected arson at a State Government property in Beck Place on Friday night is under investigation. Detectives believe someone dragged an old mattress in front of the property’s front door and set it alight between 8.30pm and 9.30pm. No one was home at the time and the fire did not spread to surrounding properties.
The fire caused damage to the front door and ceiling plus smoke damage, with the total cost of repairs estimated to be $46,000.
