Police update
Two arrested following Crawley flat fire
Date Added: 12 April 2012 12:34
Police Reference: PR38862-2012
Two people have been arrested following the fire at a block of flats in Crawley. Police attended Caledonian House, Barnfield Road, Crawley, this morning following a report of a fire shortly after 12.15am. The fire was in a bin store cupboard located within the block of flats on the second floor. Approximately 20 flats were initially evacuated, however the majority of the residents were let back a short time later.

A 52-year-old woman and a 45-year-old man, both from Crawley, have been arrested on suspicion of abstracting electricity. They both remain in custody. A joint investigation between Sussex Police and West Sussex Fire and Rescue Service is taking place and the cause of the fire is still under investigation.
