Arson attack - Higher Ince
Thursday 10th April, 2014

Police are appealing for witnesses after an arson attack in Wigan.

At around 10.30pm on Monday 31 March 2014, an accelerant was thrown on the door of a home on Silverdale Avenue, Higher Ince and set on fire.

The offender walked off.

Police Constable Sean Robinson said: “This was a deliberate act and it is only after the homeowner noticed the fire underneath the door that he realised he was in danger. I would ask anyone who may have seen someone acting in a suspicious manner or leaving the house at around the same time as the fire, to contact us.”

Anyone with information should phone police on 0161 856 7124 or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
