A woman aged in her 60s has escaped injury following an arson attack on a house in Londonderry on Tuesday evening.
Bins were set alight at the back of the property in the Shantallow area at around 8.30pm, and the fire spread to a nearby oil tank.
The woman managed to get out in time and was given treatment for shock.
Police said the blaze caused "substantial damage" to the house, and to a number of neighbouring homes at Greenhaw Avenue.
Fire crews attended and extinguished the flames.
Investigations are underway into a possible link between this fire and damage caused to a car parked in the area the same night.
They said it's believed a slate was thrown through the rear window of the vehicle some time between 9.30pm and 10.30pm.
Any witnesses to suspicious activity in the area are asked to come forward.
