Fam­ily asleep as fire starts

The Dominion Post - - News -

Three adults and a child were asleep when their Porirua house was seem­ingly set ablaze. Po­lice are ap­peal­ing for in­for­ma­tion after the fire on Northum­ber­land St, Can­nons Creek, early on Satur­day. The house was badly dam­aged and the fire had been caused by ar­son, po­lice said. Po­lice were par­tic­u­larly keen to find a man seen in the area. He was de­scribed as a Ma¯ori or Pa­cific Is­lan­der in his late 20s to early 30s. He was wear­ing black jeans and a black and yel­low sin­glet with ‘‘7’’ on the back. He had a black back­pack.
