Three people were inside the house in the suburb of Melville when the fire broke out just before 7pm.

They escaped without injury.

Police said they would like to hear from anyone who may have witnessed anything suspicious in the Ohaupo Road area at the time.

They were also interested in the movements of a car similar to a silver Toyota Sprinter with orange wheels.
