Mr Muirhead said he had no idea who started the fires, but was thankful his house was undamaged and his family unharmed.

''We have had good supportive neighbours offering help . . . and in a stressful time like this it is nice just knowing my wife and kids are OK.''

'He thanked the firefighters and police who attended the blaze.
