Arson suspected in destructive house fire
A 24-YEAR-OLD man was arrested on suspicion of setting fire to his sister’s home in Kratie town. His sister claimed he was very drunk and regularly fought with members of her family, so she refused to let him into her home when he turned up at her door on Friday. The brother is alleged to have then set fire to the property in a rage. The house was completely destroyed and neighbours were unable to help due to the ferocity of the flames. The suspect was arrested while trying to escape.
