A fire at a home on Lincoln Road on Friday may have been deliberately set, Fredericton police say.

Emergency responders were called to the home on the Saint John River, just south of the Bypass Bridge, at 3 p.m.

Sgt. Charlie Cameron says the fire started in the back porch area and was put out quickly. Only the back deck area was damaged.

No one was hurt.

Cameron says it appears to be a case of arson.
