A fire at a derelict building in Co Tyrone was started deliberately, police have said.

The blaze happened at around 10pm on Sunday at a building in the Derry Road area of Strabane.

PSNI sergeant James McLaughlin appealed for anyone who witnessed the fire to come forward.

"Police attended along with NIFRS who extinguished the blaze, the fire service has advised that this fire was started deliberately," he said.

"I am appealing to anyone who was in the area around this time, or prior to when the fire was reported to us and has information that they believe could assist our investigation to call non-emergency 101, quoting reference 1249 10/02/19."
