The property was significantly damaged in the fire, police said.

Officers now want to identify a man who was seen in the area at the time of the blaze. He is described as 5ft 9in, of medium build and carrying a rucksack.

The man was wearing a black hat or hood and was carrying two large black bags. He was last seen walking in the direction of the Bowhouse Roundabout.

Central Scotland Police said they also wanted to trace the driver of a large white vehicle, which was seen parked in Main Street at about 1800 GMT on Saturday.
