The incident happened in Northfield on Monday morning (13th April).
Detectives want to speak to David White in connection with the outrageous attack that happened in Farren Road just before 08:30 hours.
Thankfully, the woman and the two children were able to escape from the property before it was engulfed in flames.
34-year-old White is suspected of gaining access to the property and setting fire to house furnishings before leaving the premises and fleeing from the area.
