A man has been arrested after a house fire in Co Antrim.

The 21-year-old was held on suspicion of arson following the early morning blaze at Maybin Park in Kells.

The suspect, who was arrested in Ballymena, was in police custody last night.

The Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue Service said it received a report of a fire at 3.45am yesterday.

It is understood no one was in the house at the time of the blaze but that a neighbour was led to safety by firefighters.

The property was extensively damaged.

Three appliances attended the scene and the blaze was brought under control in around 40 minutes, the Fire and Rescue Service said.
