Neighbouring properties were also evacuated safely.

“Everyone is safe. All the children got out an are safe,” said one neighbour.

The fire started at around 10.50pm last night, and fire crews and police responded within minutes.

Now residents are appealing for information from anyone with CCTV or ring cameras to try and trace the person responsible.

The mum who’s house was damaged said: “It’s been very stressful and I want them found and charged so they can’t do it to more innocent people.”

Cheshire fire service said they were called at around 10.50pm, sending appliances from Nantwich and Crewe.

A spokesperson said: “Firefighters were called to a moped on fire in Olney Place, Henhull.

“The fire had spread to a car and a property. Crews wearing breathing apparatus used a hose reel jet to put out the fires.

“They then used a thermal imaging camera to check for hotspots.”

Anyone with information is urged to contact Cheshire Police on 101.
