Man and dog escape home 'arson' in Lowestoft

  • 12-31-2013

A man and his dog have escaped from a house fire which police are treating as arson.

The man, who lives in Britten Road in Lowestoft, left the house and saw flames coming from the lean-to at the side of the property.

Police, who were called to the address at about 04:35 GMT, are investigating the fire.

They want to speak to a "blonde woman" and a teenage boy, who was wearing a "grey all-in-one outfit".

A spokesperson for Suffolk Police said the woman had banged on a nearby resident's door to alert them to the fire.

The teenager is described as being about 5ft 8in (1.7m) tall and is thought to have spoken to several people at the scene of the fire.

Two fire crews tackled the blaze, which damaged half of the ground floor of the property.
