Officers were called to Montpellier Street in Mornington, where a vacant house was set ablaze.

Four people fled in a car, which crashed into a stationary taxi, before taking off on foot.

One man was taken into custody last night, while the police searched for the three young males.

All four are due to appear in the District Court in Dunedin on 2 November on arson-related charges.

One is also facing a driving charge.
