Police in Prince Albert are investigating a house fire that they say appears to have been deliberately set.

The fire happened just before 8 a.m. Saturday at 596 24th Street East, at the corner of 24th Street and 6th Avenue East.

No one was home at the time of the fire and no one was injured, but there is extensive damage to the inside of the house.

Investigators believe they are dealing with a case of arson. The house has an open yard with a clear view of the residence, so it is possible someone may have witnessed the crime.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Prince Albert Police Service.
