A REWARD has been offered to help catch those responsible for an arson attack at a family's home.
Nazia Gulbhar, 27, and her children Ismael Ali, four, Sabyha Ali, three, and Aizah Ali, 20 months, had to flee their home in Highfield Road, Frizinghall, early on Thursday, March 23.
They are now staying with her brother Banaras Hussain while their damaged home is repaired.
Mr Hussain, a lawyer, is offering a £5,000 reward for information that leads to a conviction.
He said: “I was at home in bed when I got a phone call at about 4am from my sister saying her house was on fire.




“This has traumatised the children. It was very scary.
"I’m a father-of-four myself, and you are supposed to feel safe in your own home.
“It’s just not on what has happened, they were all asleep and could have ended up dead.
“What were these people thinking? They must not have a heart at all.”
Mr Hussain said it was his sister’s next door neighbour who spotted the fire after going outside to smoke, and thanked him for kicking down the front door and waking the family.
“It could have been much worse so we are very thankful to him,” he added.
Mr Hussain believes fabric was put through the letterbox before being set alight, causing damage to the door.
“The fact there was a second door in the porch area but despite it being closed there was still a lot of damage, so I could not imagine what could have happened if it was open.
