Cumbrian family put at risk by arson attack

Police and fire service bosses have condemned arsonists who put the lives of a Cumbrian couple and their three young children at risk.

Fire crews were called to an unoccupied property at Well Ings, Kirkbarrow, in the early hours of Sunday.

The blaze was quickly extinguished, but police said the incident put the lives of a family in the adjoining building at risk.

A spokesman for Cumbria Police appealed for any witnesses to come forward.
