Family escapes 'suspicious' blaze
A fire at a house in Caithness is being treated as suspicious, police have confirmed.

A family with young children were in their home in Leith Walk in Wick when the fire broke out at about midnight.

A spokesman for Northern Constabulary said they managed to escape the blaze before it took hold. No-one was injured.

Officers are particularly keen to speak to a young man seen walking away from the house at the time of the fire.
