POLICE are keen to trace these two people in connection with a fire at a property in Poole.
The blaze was reported at an address in Northmere Road at around 12.53am on Monday (September 4).
Officers are investigating as they suspect the fire was started deliberately, amid reports two people broke into the address.
Now, CCTV footage has been released, containing two people police would like to speak to in connection with the incident.
“It is reported that two men broke into the address, before a fire was started,” a spokesperson said.
“The occupants were not at home when the incident occurred.”
A cordon was put in place to allow for an examination of the scene to be carried out, they added.
Detective Inspector Darren Moores, of BCP CID, said: “This incident has had a significant impact on the victims and it is lucky that nobody was injured.
“I have obtained moving CCTV footage of two men I would like to identify who were seen in the area at the time and I would ask anyone who recognises them to please come forward.
“Also, I am keen to speak to anyone who saw or heard any suspicious activity in the vicinity around the relevant time.”
