Police at Paisley are investigating and appealing for information regarding two suspicious fires.

The fires were started in the Glenburn area of Paisley in the early hours of this morning between 2.10am and 2.30am.

Emergency services were called to a fire at a flat in Fairway Avenue, then alerted to another fire at a flat in nearby Lammermuir Drive, Paisley.

Detective Inspector Suzanne Chow of Paisley Police Office said today: “Although police enquiries are continuing into the cause of the fire, they are being treated as suspicious and we believe that they may be linked.

“Luckily no one was injured as a result of these incidents, but we must trace whoever is responsible as soon as possible.

“I would urge anyone who may have seen someone acting suspiciously on Friday morning in this area to contact police. Anyone with information that may assist police enquiries should contact Police Scotland on 101.

“Alternatively CRIMESTOPPERS can be contacted on 0800 555 111, where anonymity can be maintained.”
