Police ask for information on ‘suspicious’ house fire

POLICE investigating a house fire in South Grafton last year have renewed their appeal to the public for information.

A New South Wales Police Force spokesman said about 8.30pm on Wednesday, October 17, police and other emergency services were called to a home in Peppermint Pl.

"Upon arrival, they found the home was well alight," the spokesman said.

"Fire & Rescue NSW extinguished the blaze, however, the home was completely destroyed."

Detectives from Coffs/Clarence Local Area Command are continuing their investigation into the cause of the fire, which is being treated as suspicious.

At the time The Daily Examiner reported the Peppermint Pl, South Grafton, home of former Grafton rugby league star Xavier Sullivan had been gutted by fire.

The community rallied behind an appeal to raise money for Mr Sullivan and his family, who were in Sydney at the time, attending an athletics meet his daughter was competing in.
