A number of enquiries are underway including conducting house-to-house and reviewing CCTV footage.
Inspector Paul Fegan, of Ellesmere Port local policing unit, said: “The scale of the fire has understandably shocked and upset our local community and residents can expect to see officers patrolling the area to provide reassurance.
“We’re doing everything possible to find those responsible and are currently following numerous lines of enquiry.
“I am keen to hear from anyone who has CCTV or dashcam footage that could assist us in piecing together how the fire started.”
Three teenage boys, two aged 13 and one aged 14, were arrested on suspicion of arson and have since been released on conditional bail.
