Two suspicious fires at one house
POLICE are investigating a suspicious fire at a house in McLean's Ridges near Lismore.
About 8:35pm, Wednesday 20 February 2013, a man and woman were in the kitchen of their home on Camerons Road when the electricity went off.
The pair went to check the fuse box when they discovered a mattress on fire in one of the bedrooms.

No one was injured during the fire.
The home was examined by specialist forensic officers and Fire and Rescue NSW officers and will be examined today by detectives from Lismore, who believe the fires were deliberately lit.
