A man has been arrested on suspicion of arson following a fire at a block of flats on the Bournville estate last night (Tuesday).

Two fire crews attended the blaze at Marlow House in Lonsdale Avenue at around 8.30pm before police arrived at the scene at around 9pm.

Although the cause of the blaze is unknown, police have not ruled out the possibility that it was started deliberately.

The fire crews entered the building, which was evacuated before arrival, in breathing apparatus where they tackled the fire in a first-floor room and corridor with two high-pressure hose reels.

No-one was injured in the incident.
