A Stevenage household has been made temporarily homeless after their home was deliberately set alight.
Detectives are now appealing for witnesses after the arson in The Muntings.
Police were called by the fire service shortly before midday on Tuesday, September 22, to advise that they were attending a fire at the address.
It was discovered that the front door of the property had been deliberately set alight, causing extensive damage.
Det Con Jennie Wilson, from the Stevenage Local Crime Unit, said: “Thankfully no one was inside the property at the time, as the consequences could have proved fatal. Extensive damage was caused however and the occupants of the address have been left temporarily homeless as a result.
