A man and a woman have been arrested following a flat fire in Stoke-on-Trent at the weekend.
Just before 6 oclock on Sunday afternoon, Staffordshire Police were called by their colleagues from Staffordshire Fire and Rescue to Sutton Place, in Chell Heath.
Firefighters extinguished a fire inside the ground floor of the building, and despite no person being injured a dog was sadly found dead inside.
A 49-year-old woman and a 40-year-old man, from Stoke-on-Trent, were both arrested on suspicion of arson with intent to endanger life. Police Officers are currently working alongside fire investigators to determine the cause of the blaze and ask anyone with any information to get in touch with them.
