Police investigate two suspicious fires in New Brighton

5:49 pm on 9 September 2012

Christchurch police are seeking information on two suspicious fires in the suburb of New Brighton in the early hours of Saturday.

The Fire Service was called to a storage yard on Owles Terrace shortly after midnight, where a bus and a truck were alight.

A short time later an abandoned red zoned house on Bexley Road was discovered on fire and has been almost completely gutted.

Both fires appear to have been deliberately lit.
