Was Cowbit garden fire arson?
A family no longer feel safe at home after their newly refurbished garden went up in flames in the early hours of Tuesday.
Single mum Julie Waters woke up just after 1am when her bedroom was filled with an orange glow from flames consuming fencing, a £350 Lay-Z- Spa, a children's playhouse and other garden items.
Julie's boyfriend, ex firefighter Abilio Da Silva, tackled the fire with a garden hose until fire crews from Spalding and Crowland reached the house in Clarkson Avenue, Cowbit.
Firefighters were on the scene for a couple of hours and Julie says police have told her the fire may have been deliberately started by a naked flame or a lighted item being thrown into the garden.
Julie isn't insured and a friend of her elder daughter's has started an appeal to help the family.
The mum and grandma was at home with daughter Demi (11) and son Matthew (21) when the fire started.
Julie said: "My 11-year-old daughter doesn't feel safe in the house."
And Julie says she also doesn't feel safe "right now".
Julie had saved for a couple of years to renovate the garden and while the spa was a luxury item it had a medical purpose because it was there to help Demi and grandson Theo (2) who suffer from eczema.
The spa was installed in the garden at the weekend.
The playhouse had huge sentimental value because it was built for Julie's elder daughter, Georgia, who lives in Deeping St Nicholas with her two children.
Georgia said the whole family is devastated.
"Mum woke up to orange flame glowing in the bedroom," said Georgia. "She looked out of the window and the whole garden was up in flames."
Georgia's friend, Zoe Louise Richer Dawson, set up the GoFundMe page and it can be found by searching Zoe's name on GoFundMe or by clicking here.
Police are asking anyone with information to call 101.
