A man has been charged with attempted murder after an alleged deliberate fire-raising attack in Inverclyde.
The incident is said to have occurred at a property in Union Street, Greenock, on July 13.
Police said a 22-year-old man has been charged with attempted murder in connection with the incident.

He made no plea and was remanded in custody.
Ahead of the court appearance, Detective Superintendent Gerry McBride, of Renfrewshire and Inverclyde Division, said: “This is the third arrest and charge in connection with the wilful fire-raising at Union Street in Greenock in July and another significant development in relation to our investigations into recent fire-raisings in the area.
“I would like to once again thank the public and our partners for their ongoing support during what has been a concerning time in the community.
“Investigations are still ongoing and I would continue to urge anyone with information to please contact police.”
