Appeal following wilful fire raising in Paisley
Officers are appealing for witnesses following a fire raising at a derelict property in Paisley.
An attempt was made to start a fire within premises on Forbes Place, Paisley around 11.55pm on Wednesday, 23 June.
Unknown people gained entry to the building and a fire was set on the floor of the property.
The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service attended and extinguished the fire. Nobody was injured.
