    Devastation for owners of a historic house set on fire over the weekend

    Devastation for owners of a historic house set on fire over the weekend


    The fire at the 105-year-old house on Park Terrace broke out just after 1am yesterday.

    A 40-year-old man has been charged with arson and has been remanded in custody at Christchurch District Court

    The owners say family members and friends were out for the evening and returned to find the house in flames

    They say they're thankful no one was asleep inside - but the loss of their home - which they've worked to restore to it's former glory since the quakes - is a real blow.

    The owners also thanked the emergency service for their efforts.
