Detective Chief Inspector Simon Walker is looking into a possible motivation for the attacks.
He said: "I have real concerns about this repeat attack that has seen two incidents in the space of just over 30 hours.
"We do not yet know why this address was targeted but we are conducting inquiries and are seeking help from the public to identify those responsible for these offences, which could clearly have had far more serious consequences.
"One of the occupants in the house has suffered for a number of years with cancer. She is extremely vulnerable, making the actions of the offender even more dangerous.
"This is a persistent, cowardly attack on a law abiding family."
Police were called just before 1.30am on Monday following a suspected arson attack.
The property was occupied at the time. The flames were put out and nobody was injured.
At about 8.30am on New Year’s Day, a second fire broke out in the living room of the address. Again it is believed it was started maliciously.
The occupier managed to put out the fire.
Nobody was hurt, although the house suffered fire damage.
A 42-year-old man was arrested in connection with the first attack but has been released on bail pending further inquiries.
No one has been arrested for the second attack but the two are being linked.
Anyone with information should call Humberside Police on the non-emergency number 101.
