Cops say ar­rest will be made over fire

Lennox Herald - - FRONT PAGE - Carla Tal­bot

Po­lice have con­firmed they ex­pect to make an ar­rest this week fol­low­ing the blaze which left a mum crit­i­cally ill.

Su­san War­ing, 44, was trapped in­side her home in Red­burn, Bon­hill as a re­sult of the fire.

Of­fi­cers, who are treat­ing the in­ci­dent as at­tempted mur­der, now say they are clos­ing in on those re­spon­si­ble for start­ing the fire last month, af­ter speak­ing to Su­san.

In­spec­tor John Mullen con­firmed she has since been re­leased from hos­pi­tal and has left the area.

The mum-of-five was left in a coma and fight­ing for life fol­low­ing the fire in the early hours of Tues­day, July 25.

Neigh­bours could hear her scream­ing for help and tried to res­cue her but were over­whelmed by the smoke from the prop­erty.

Her best friend Fran Pa­ton – who said Su­san had a “heart of gold”– held her soot-cov­ered hand af­ter she was pulled from her burn­ing home.

In­spec­tor Mullen, of Dum­bar­ton po­lice of­fice told us yes­ter­day (Tues­day): “Of­fi­cers, are hop­ing to de­tain sus­pects to­day or to­mor­row.”
