Police have arrested a 23-year-old man in relation to a blaze that destroyed a Creedon Street house on Monday night.
The man, who is the de facto partner of the owner of the house, was arrested by officers at a Thomas Street home yesterday.
Firefighters and police arrived at the scene just before 9pm to find the entire house engulfed by flames. It took crews two hours to put out the fire and check for hot spots.
