Suspected arson attack leaves Foulsham horse sanctuary owner homeless
A man has seen his home in Foulsham destroyed following a suspected arson attack.
Horse sanctuary owner William Hand has been left living in his car, after the caravan he lived in burst into flames.
The incident took place on Wednesday at around 9pm, and saw appliances from Fakenham, Holt, Reepham and Hethersett attend the scene.
“I just lost it when I heard,” Mr Hand, 52, said. “I’ve got nothing, all I have are the clothes on my back.
“I haven’t got a phone, I’ve got nowhere to live, and noone to go to.”
Mr Hand also lost some of his pets in the fire.
He said: “I had four bearded dragons, they’re all gone. It’s a miracle my dog survived.”
Mr Hand said all of the horses that he was caring for were currently at another sanctuary.
Police arrested a man in his 30s, who was being held in police custody for further questioning last night.
