Over the past five years more than half the fires in Cheshire were started deliberately.
Avoid placing bins, rubbish, or other combustible items against the walls of the home. These are a ready supply of fuel for the arsonist. Store wheelie bins away, especially at night, to stop them becoming a target for arsonists. Consider security systems such as intruder alarms/security lighting to deter intruders.
If you see any suspicious activity in your area please contact Cheshire Police on their non emergency number 101 (or dial 999 if appropriate) or call crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
