Three houses have been targeted in arson attacks in south Belfast.

Shortly after 2330 BST on Saturday, the fire service was called to the scene of two separate fires in Cromwell Road.

Scorch and smoke damage was caused by the fires at a first floor bedroom of a property and the ground floor of another.

Three fire engines then attended a fire at a house in Fitzroy Avenue on Sunday morning. No-one was in any of the properties and there were no injuries.

The fire at Fitzroy Avenue was on the ground floor and second floor of the property.

Police are investigating a link between the three incidents.
