Police to investigated latest fire at Shirley Towers
10:20am Tuesday 17th July 2012 in Crime
POLICE have launched an investigation into a fire that broke out on the same floor of a Southampton tower block where a blaze killed two firefighters two years ago.
Residents on the ninth floor of Shirley Towers had to flee their homes on Saturday night after smoke engulfed the communal corridor.
Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service is examining whether a bag of rubbish was deliberately set alight outside the home of mum Claire Storey and her four-year-old son Callum.
A police spokesman said last night that officers were carrying out door to door inquiries.
