Arson theory over Highbridge house fire

A fire which badly damaged a derelict house in Somerset is believed to have been started deliberately.

Emergency services were called to the property on the Poplar Estate, Highbridge, early on Tuesday.

An Avon and Somerset Police spokesman said the cause of the fire was not known but was being treated as deliberate ignition.

"Anyone who has any information about the fire, which started about 2:45am, is asked to call police," he added.
