Police investigating Eastbourne house fire

10 Jul, 2018 11:07 News Witness Appeals

Police are investigating a fire which occurred at a house in Croxden Way, Eastbourne, about 1.19am on Tuesday (10 July).

Officers currently remain at the scene and are working with colleagues at East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service to establish the cause of the fire, which is being treated as arson.

Police have been informed three people reside at the property – a man in his 20s has been taken to hospital with burns injuries, and the two other people are as yet unaccounted for.

It will be some time before forensic scientists can access the building due to the ferocity of the fire and the subsequent damage caused.

The investigation is in the very early stages and there are no further details available at this time.

Anyone with any information is urged to report it online or call 101, quoting Operation Druffield.
