Two men arrested over Oxford tower block fire

Two men have been arrested in connection with a fire that broke out at a block of flats in Oxford.

All of the residents at Foresters Tower, Wood Farm, had to leave their homes as the building was evacuated in the early hours of Tuesday.

No-one was hurt, but one flat was badly damaged by the fire, Thames Valley Police said.

A 20-year-old man and a 40-year-old man, arrested on suspicion of arson, are being questioned by detectives.
