Police are looking for two men who were seen in the area of a suspicious house fire in Palmerston North. A house on Milson Line was destroyed by a blaze early on Wednesday morning. No-one was injured in the fire, which started just after midnight and was brought under control about 1am. A police statement yesterday said officers were still investigating the fire. ‘‘Police are keen to identify two males who were seen running away from the vicinity of the fire and then returned a short time later from the direction of McGregor St with a third male and watched events unfold.’’ The statement asked anyone with information about the men to contact police and quote file number 220112/4453. The house has been gutted by the blaze and the roof has collapsed.
