Alleged drug house goes up in flames after police raid in NSW

A house that was allegedly being used to grow drugs and was raided by police last week has gone up in flames in Sydney’s south.

Fire crews were called to the house ablaze on Webster Avenue in Peakhurst just after 2am this morning.

They arrived at the scene to find the building “well alight”.


Fortunately, the house was vacant at the time and no one was injured.

Just last week, police had raided the home and allegedly seized around 70 cannabis plants worth an estimated $200,000.

Last night’s fire is being treated as suspicious.

Police told reporters there was evidence of a flammable liquid being used in a number of rooms inside the house.

Detectives attended the incident and established a crime scene which was examined by forensic officers overnight..

Anyone with any information is urged to come forward and contact Crime Stoppers.
