Death blaze arson probe.

DETECTIVES were yesterday investigating whether a blaze that killed a mum and her three-year-old girl was arson.

The bodies of Tara-Jayne Mallon, thought to be in her 30s, and daughter Chloe were found in a flat in Earlsfield, London, on Friday night.

Police said the flat was hit by fire last November and would not comment on claims a bed had been put across the door of the room where the pair died.

Detective Superintendent Michael McNally said: "We are working with the fire investigation unit to try to establish how the fire started."

Nobody has been arrested, and officers are currently waiting on the results of post-mortem examinations.

Neighbours said Tara-Jayne's partner was taken away by police when he turned up at the flat several hours after the blaze.
