Caernarfon Herald - - FRONT PAGE - Owen Evans

A po­lice in­ves­ti­ga­tion has been launched after a hol­i­day home was left gut­ted in an early morn­ing blaze.

North Wales Po­lice are un­der­tak­ing a joint in­ves­ti­ga­tion with North Wales Fire and Res­cue Ser­vice after the house in Mynytho, near Pwll­heli, caught fire.

Emer­gency ser­vices were called to the re­mote prop­erty at around 6am on Tues­day.

District In­spec­tor Gethin Jones, at Pwll­heli Po­lice Sta­tion, said: “North Wales Po­lice are con­duct­ing a joint in­ves­ti­ga­tion with the North Wales Fire and Res­cue Ser­vice to es­tab­lish the cause of the fire.

“Clearly this will be com­pleted as soon as pos­si­ble to al­le­vi­ate any un­der­stand­able con­cerns in the com­mu­nity.

“I am ap­peal­ing to any­one who was in the area at the time who saw any sus­pi­cious per­sons or ac­tiv­ity, or in­deed knows any­thing about this fire, to con­tact po­lice im­me­di­ately.”

Fire­fight­ers were able to bring the fire un­der con­trol, but the blaze has not yet been fully ex­tin­guished.

There was no­body in the prop­erty at the time of the fire, but it suf­fered ex­ten­sive dam­age.

DI Jones added: “If you have any in­for­ma­tion, con­tact North Wales Po­lice con­trol room di­rect via web live chat at north-wales.po­lice.uk/ con­tact/chat-support.aspx.

“Al­ter­na­tively, phone po­lice on 101 or anony­mously via Crimestop­pers on 0800 555 111 and quote ref­er­ence num­ber V165132.”
