At about 10pm on Tuesday, December 4, the front door of the flat within Berkshire Court was set alight in what is thought to have been a deliberate attack.
Detective Constable Andy Hobden said: “Thankfully, the fire was extinguished before any serious damage was caused to the building or any harm was done to the occupants.
“Anyone with information is asked to call Sussex Police on 101 quoting serial 1603 of 04/12. Alternatively, call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
