Police in Devon and Cornwall are appealing for information following a suspected arson near Truro.

Firefighters tackled a blaze at an under-construction property in Belmont Terrace, Devoran, which started between 6.30pm and 7.55pm on Monday 24th February.

The fire, which engulfed the entire timber-framed building, is believed to have been started deliberately and police enquiries are ongoing.

Extensive damage was caused and nothing could be salvaged from the property. 

“The fire has had a major impact on the victim, leaving them fearful and anxious about what may happen next, affected the community and caused huge unrest in the village.”

Devon and Cornwall Police spokesperson
