Bendigo Crime Investigation Unit detectives are investigating after a man set a Long Gully house alight while a man and teenage girl slept inside last month.
Investigators believe an unknown man approached the Holdsworth Road home and set fire to a weatherboard outside the 16-year-old girl’s bedroom about 1am on Friday, 22 July.
The girl woke to find her room full of smoke and raised the alarm to her 52-year-old father.
Country Fire Authority members attended and extinguished the small fire.
There were no physical injuries sustained during the incident.
Investigators have released CCTV of a man they believe may be able to assist with their enquiries.
He is described as having a medium build and was wearing a hoodie and work boots.
