Arson is suspected in two derelict house fires on either side of the South Island last night. 

Firefighters were called to an abandoned Hereford St, Christchurch, home about 7.40pm. A fire was initially in the roof, a Fire Service spokeswoman said. 

Then at 8pm, a fire was discovered in an empty Bright St, Cobden, home. 

Firefighters from Cobden and Greymouth attended.  

Both blazes were considered suspicious. 

Fire Safety would investigate the Cobden fire, the spokeswoman said.
