Police appeal for information into Coleraine fire

Police in Coleraine are appealing for information following a fire at a property in the Ballycastle Road area in the early hours of Sunday 22nd January.
A report was received by police at around 4am that an oil tank at a house was on fire. The fire then spread to the house causing substantial damage, requiring the occupants and near neighbours to be evacuated. The Ballycastle Road was closed for some time whilst emergency services dealt with the incident but has since re-opened. A man, woman and a small child were taken to hospital to be treated for smoke inhalation.
Chief Inspector Mark McClarence said: “ The cause of the fire has yet to be established, however, I would appeal to anyone who was in the Ballycastle Road area at around 4am this morning and who may have information which could assist with police enquiries, to contact officers in Coleraine on 101.”
