A 15-year-old girl has been arrested over her involvement in a fire at a One Mile home on Monday morning and will now appear before the Youth Justice Conference.

It is believed the girl lit an item near the home, which subsequently caught fire.

The home's owner, Ricky Murphy, lost everything in the blaze.
