A man has been arrested over a fire at a Christchurch business.

Firefighters were called out to Image Vault at about 4am yesterday to fight a large fire in the two-storey building.

Police arrested a 31-year-old man that night in relation to the arson that gutted the building.

He appeared in Christchurch District Court today.

It was the second suspicious fire at a Christchurch business in two days and police investigations continue.

Christchurch firm Brian Ford Engineering in Woolston was destroyed by an early morning fire yesterday.
