Two women escape 'suspicious' flat fire in Stevenston

  • 10-15-2011

Two women escaped a flat fire in Stevenston, Ayrshire that police believe was deliberately started.

A 31-year-old woman woman jumped out of a first floor window and another, aged 34, was rescued by firefighters from the building on Carment Drive.

The emergency services were called at about 02:30, and found the doors of two first-floor flats on fire.

Both women were taken to hospital but it is understood neither was seriously injured.

Strathclyde Police said an investigation was under way to establish the cause of the fire, which was being treated as suspicious.

Det Sgt Alan Sommerville, of Saltcoats CID, said: "At the moment we can find no motive for this wilful fire raising.

"I am appealing to anyone who was in the Carment Drive area of Stevenston in the early hours of Saturday morning and who may have seen someone hanging around or seen or heard anything in any way suspicious to get in touch as soon as possible."
