STRET­FORD

Sale & Altrincham Advertiser - - NEWS -

A WOMAN and a teenage boy were forced to es­cape their home after a cam­per van was torched in a sus­pected ar­son at­tack.

Fire­fight­ers were called to a house on Mil­ton Road shortly after 1am on Tues­day morn­ing.

The cam­per van, which was parked on the drive, was de­stroyed and flames spread to a nearby Nis­san and the house it­self, caus­ing fur­ther dam­age.

Both the woman and the boy were un­hurt.

Kieran Gillam, watch man­ager at Stret­ford fire sta­tion, said: “The fire cracked the win­dows and melted all the gut­ter­ing but the res­i­dents were fine.”

A po­lice spokesman con­firmed they were in­ves­ti­gat­ing the in­ci­dent.

Wit­nesses can call 101 or Crimestop­pers on 0800 555 111.
