GRAFTON Police are investigating a deliberately lit fire at a service station on Monday night that could have had a disastrous result.
While a tanker was delivering petrol to the station in Prince St, Grafton, opposite the skate park, at about 8pm, two females entered the service station and used the toilet.
The pair, on leaving the store, walked across to the skate park where they met a male.
