Police say he was arrested in the George Town area last night on suspicion of arson with intent to endanger life. At around 10:45pm on Wednesday night police and fire fighters were called to the scene of a house fire on Fairlawn Road. Theresa Brown, a mother for four and resident at the property, said she woke in the middle of the night to see flames coming from the air conditioning unit. She told Cayman27 that after the fire she and the rest of her family went to her mother’s home in the same yard where a few hours later there was another fire.

Police said that structural damage was caused to Brown’s home but no one was injured in the fire. Enquiries into the possible double arson are continuing. Anyone with information on this matter or any crime taking place within the Cayman Islands is asked to call any of the police stations or 800(TIPS) 8477.
