Arson arrest made
An 18-year-old is facing charges of burglary and arson following a fire in Onehunga. Neighbours called 111 around 1.30am on Tuesday after seeing three men at a vacant house on Catherine St and smelling smoke. Three fire crews responded. The fire in the lounge appears to have been deliberately lit and caused a reasonable amount of damage, fire investigator Lynda McHugh says. Police are continuing inquiries about two other men seen in the vicinity at the time of the fire, Auckland Police Detective Senior Sergeant John Sutton says.
