“All three remain in custody at this time.

“Police investigating the matter want to hear from anyone who was in the area of Goldstone Crescent at the time of the fire.

“They particularly want to speak to anyone who saw any suspicious behaviour in the area at the time or who has any CCTV or doorbell cameras that may have captured any relevant footage.
