Firefighters from Nelson were called to the shop next to the Prince of Wales Hotel just after 11 p.m. on Sunday evening and found four seperate locations of fire inside the building.

Police investigating the cause found someone had forced entry at the rear of the property, and are checking out the many CCTV footages in the area.
