The house fire in Bath which claimed the life of a 64-year-old man was found to have started accidentally.
Four fire engines were alerted to the incident at a two-storey detached house early on Monday morning.
A 64 year-old man in a serious condition was rescued by firefighters from a first floor bedroom. He was taken to hospital by ambulance but sadly later passed away.
A second man, aged 92 years-old, was also rescued by firefighters from a second bedroom. He was also taken to hospital after suffering burns and smoke inhalation.
Crews say a third man, believed to be a neighbour who entered the property to help before emergency services arrived, was also treated for the effects of smoke inhalation but was discharged at the scene.
An investigation has been launched by the fire service in Bristol after they were called to three separate arson attacks in the early hours of 1st April.
All three fires happened in the space of two hours. The first in Tockington at around 1:30am where a van had been torched.
The second incident in Shirehampton where firefighters found a car on fire, and then a final blaze at a garage in Longwell Green at 3:30am.
The causes of the fires were all deemed deliberate.
