Inspector Swanson said: “This was a significant blaze. Thankfully, there have been no reports of anyone being injured. If not for the work of the NIFRS, however, the outcome could have been different for residents in the immediate area and their homes.

“As enquiries in relation to the cause of the blaze continue, we’re appealing to anyone who was in the area from around 8pm and saw any suspicious behaviour, or has information which could assist our enquiries, to get in touch.”
