Police in Telford are appealing for help in tracking down those responsible for an arson attack on a house in the Woodside area.
Sometime between 3.30pm and 3.50pm on Tuesday 15th April 2014 a small air grill near the front door of a new upvc frontage at a terraced house on Wildwood was set alight.
The upvc frontage melted and caused significant damage to the porch. It also posed a risk to other neighbouring properties in the terrace.
Detective Constable Paul Pennell said: â€œThis could have put all of the occupants of the adjoining houses in danger if the fire had spread. Luckily it was quickly brought under control.
â€œWe are appealing for anyone who saw or heard anything suspicious in the Wildwood area of Woodside on Tuesday afternoon to contact us.â€
If anyone has information they are asked to contact DC Pennell on the non emergency 101 quoting incident number 390s 150414.
