Police are appealing for witnesses after a pub was destroyed by a fire in Wellington.
The Merry Harriers, on Blackdown Hill Road, West Buckland, was gutted by the blaze on Sunday (18/12) night.
Investigating officer Det Sgt Darren Lipscomb said:
“We believe the fire was started deliberately at around 10pm and we are treating it as arson.
“Thankfully the building was empty so nobody was hurt but significant damage was caused.
“As part of our investigation we’re keen to speak to anyone who witnessed anything suspicious around the time.
“Did you drive past and perhaps see a vehicle parked next to the building or see people standing nearby?
“If you saw or heard anything out of the ordinary then please get in touch.”
