A fire, which destroyed part of a Keepmoat development in Greater Manchester, is being treated as arson.
Greater Manchester Police confirmed that the fire, which broke out last Sunday night, was being treated as suspected arson.
Police said no arrests have been made and appealed for information from local residents and eyewitnesses.
The fire tore through a high-rise section of a Keepmoat development on Hyde Road, Gorton, and has almost completely destroyed the building.
A Keepmoat spokeswoman said: “The safety of residents is our priority and thankfully the vast majority of the damage caused is restricted to vacant building work.
“We’d like to thank the police and fire service for their efforts during this investigation and we will continue to work with them to establish the full cause of the incident.”
According to the GMP Fire Service, the building’s timber frame caused the fire to spread quickly from the top two floors.
The high-rise development forms part of Keepmoat’s Connell Gardens development – 4 km outside the centre of Manchester.
Connell Gardens contains two, three and four bed new-build homes. Work commenced on site in March 2015.
