Woman left homeless after arson attack

THE resident of a house gutted in an arson attack says she has been left with only the clothes on her back.
Two men have been arrested following the blaze at a bungalow in Ballymagorry shortly before 6am last Thursday.
A motive for the fire has yet to be established however police are understood to be investigating the possibility that it was related to a domestic dispute involving a former resident.
Scottish native Bridget Doak has lived in the property for over a year. She told the Strabane Chronicle that she lost everything in the blaze and that it was only by pure chance that she wasn’t at home on the night in question.
