A fundraising page has been set-up to help the owner of a house deliberately set on fire in Milton.

A friend of the Scaraway Street resident said he had been away working in Aberdeen when the blaze took hold of his house.

The contents of the home are said to be 'destroyed'.

Pictures included on the fundraising page show household items including mattresses, cabinets and lamp shades that have fire-damaged.

An initial target of £350 has almost been doubled with well-wishers digging deep to help the man.

One generous donor handed over £250.

As previously reported by the Evening Times, two men have been charged in connection with the fire.

The duo, aged 29 and 30-years-old respectively, were arrested following the blaze on Scaraway Street on February 27.
