13 rescued from fire in block of flats

The father of a one-year-old boy, rescued after a suspected arson attack in Derry, has said the family is "lucky to be alive".

The fire broke out in a communal stairwell at a block of six flats in the Carnhill area of Derry on Friday.

Trevor Ferguson from the Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue service said: "It's not confirmed, but the fire could have been deliberate."
