A wall of the Salvation Army Family Store was damaged by fire overnight after donated furniture was set on fire outside the shop.

The Palmerston North Fire Service was called to the property at 280 Church St about 3:45am.

They found a couch appeared to have been deliberately set alight in the alleyway next to the building.

Senior Station Officer Graeme Mills said police were called because the fire was deemed suspicious.

Senior Sergeant Brett Calkin, of Palmerston North Police, said they would like to hear from anyone who saw the fire, or might have seen anything suspicious around the area at the time of the fire.

The lower drink-driving limits from December are:

Great - too much carnage on our roads.

Overkill - targets moderate drinkers, not the heavies

Still too little - make it zero tolerance.

Sensible - punishment is in line with lesser breaches of limit.
