A charity shop in Wirral was deliberately set alight in the early hours of this morning according to police. Detectives are appealing for witnesses.
Police officers and firefighters were called to the Claire House charity shop on The Rake in Bromborough at 3.39am.
A passer-by saw smoke coming from a broken window and dialed 999.
Emergency crews found the shop well alight and it took several fire engines to extinguish the blaze.
Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service say they have advised the police that the fire was deliberately started and detectives from Wirral are now treating the incident as arson.
We believe this fire was deliberately started and it has caused substantial damage to the building. The charity which is based there will inevitably be disrupted and that is a great shame when it does so much good in the local community.
Someone out there will know who has done this and I would urge them to do the right thing and come forward with any information they have.
This part of Bromborough is very quiet at this time of night so anyone passing by would notice people loitering near Claire House beforehand or running away afterwards. If you remember seeing or hearing anything suspicious then please call the police or Crimestoppers.
