A 20 year-old man from the Shrewsbury area has been arrested on suspicion of arson with intent to endanger life after a fire during the early hours of Sunday.
The incident happened between 4.30am and 4.35am on Howard Street when a small explosion is reported to have occurred at the rear of the property.
Police and fire services attended and the fire was quickly extinguished.
An unknown man was seen near a storage area behind the building shortly before the explosion and investigating officers would like to speak with him as he could have useful information.
He is described as a white man, wearing a white shirt and dark coloured trousers, and is believed to have left the area in the direction of the car park.
We would like to hear from anyone who was in the area at the time and may have seen any suspicious activity.
I particularly urge the man seen nearby to contact us as he may have important information that can help us with our enquiries into the cause of this fire.
Anyone who has information can contact West Mercia Police on 101, quoting incident number 159s of 14 August.
