A HIGGINS woman will appear in the Magistrates Court this morning facing charges of arson after being arrested yesterday in relation to a Kambah house fire earlier this year. Police will oppose bail.
Police say the blaze, which started in the garage, spread to the house on Stymers Street in the early hours of Wednesday, September 2.
The garage and entire contents, including a Subaru WRX, were completely destroyed and the main part of the house suffered substantial roof damage with damage estimated to be around $123,000.
The four people inside the house were alerted by a neighbour and escaped the blaze. A 55-year-old man suffered burns to the soles of his feet.
