A RENFREWSHIRE supermarket is set to remain closed until the end of next week after it was damaged due to a New Year's Day fire.

Crews were sent to the Co-op in Houston's Crosslee Crescent just after 4am on Tuesday after receiving a report of rubbish on fire.

Firefighters tackled the fire at the back of the building and checked the roof as a precaution.

The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service confirmed around four crews were sent to the scene.

The SFRS confirmed that no one was injured.

Police have confirmed that they believe the fire was started intentionally and are currently appealing for anyone with information to contact them on 101. 

The Co-op in Houston apologised to customers.

A spokesperson for the Co-op said: “I can confirm that there was a fire at our Houston store in the early hours of New Year’s Day while the store was closed.  It is too early to know the extent of the damage or when the store is likely to reopen, and we apologise for any inconvenience this causes.”
