Two houses in Poddala, Galle had caught fire on Friday night.

Footage shows that a group that broke into the houses on Friday night, when the owners were not in, had attempted to loot the items. It is suspected that they may have set fire to the houses thereafter.

The house owner stated that the fire occurred while the residents were out at a funeral

When the Fire Brigade of the Galle Urban Council was dousing the fire at one house, another fire broke out in a house located 75 metres away.The same fire brigade was dispatched to douse that fire as well.

The Office of the Police Media Spokesperson said that both fires are connected and investigations are underway to make arrests.
