Kent Police are appealing for witnesses following a reported arson in Mulberry Way on the Great East Hall Estate here in Sittingbourne.
It is believed a fire was deliberately set outside the address between 2pm and 3pm on Sunday (23rd February).
Investigating officer, Detective Seargeant Lee Neiles of Kent Police, told SFM News: "The fire damage caused to the property appears to have originated from one of the wheelie bins positioned against the property. Although nobody was injured, this could've resulted in serious injury to the occupants had it not been for the quick response from the local residents and fire brigade. I am appealing for anyone with any information about this incident to contact me directly on 01634 792556, quoting crime report XY/6844/14, or alternatively they can contact Kent Crimestoppers, free (from any landline) and anonymously on 0800 555 111."
