Police have launched an arson investigation after a fire destroyed a house in Two Mile Ash, Milton Keynes.
The blaze gutted the house and destroyed two vehicles outside.
Det Insp Phil Hayes of Thames Valley Police said:
The property is currently cordoned off and is likely to remain so for the next couple of days while enquiries are being made. The initial response involved some road closures in the area which have now been lifted.
“If anyone has information which may assist our investigation, we would encourage them to come forward.
