Northland police believe they have cracked a near two-year-old arson case in which a house burned to the ground.

A man has been arrested in relation to a house fire in Purua, northwest of Whangarei, 22 months ago.

The 51-year-old will appear in the Whangarei District Court tomorrow on a charge of arson, among other counts.

The house in Irvine Rd was allegedly set alight between February 22 and 23, 2012, while the owner was overseas.
The house was completely destroyed.

The alleged arsonist will also face two charges of making an intimate recording, one of publishing an intimate recording and two charges of possession of an intimate recording.
