FANS of the game Grand Theft Auto who were in Tewkesbury for the new release are being asked by officers investigating a fire to get in touch if they have any information.
The blaze at a home on Station Street is being treated as suspected arson.
It is thought that the fire started between midnight and 8am yesterday, Tuesday September 17.
There were a lot of people in the town that night as potentially hundreds of gaming fans queued at the nearby Blockbusters on the High Street to await the launch of Grand Theft Auto 5.
Officers are eager to hear from anyone that saw or heard anything suspicious in the area and ask that potential witnesses call Gloucestershire Police on 101, quoting incident number 64 of September 17.
Alternatively call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 where information can be left anonymously.
