A Phillipstown house was destroyed overnight in a suspicious fire.

Firefighters were called to a two-storey house in Bordesley St at 12.30am.

A Fire Service spokesman said the fire was "quite developed" when two trucks arrived at the house.

"It was well ablaze. They called for another truck from Woolston."

There were no reports of anyone in the dwelling, he said.

Firefighters fought the fire for more than two hours before getting it under control.

The fire was being treated as "suspicious" and fire safety officers were investigating.

Is the mayor correct to put libraries, pools and community facilities ahead of the Town Hall?

Absolutely, they're far more important

I think funds should be split between those facilities and the town hall

No, the Town Hall should be rebuilt first

Just demolish the Town Hall completely instead of rebuilding
