Three car fires overnight in WrexhamPosted 19/01/2017 13:52:47
Firefighters were called to three car fires overnight in the Wrexham area.
At 04.58rs this morning, Thursday January 19, a call was received to reports of two cars on fire on a driveway at Maes Hyfryd, Rhosrobin. Firefighters used two hose reels and one breathing apparatus to tackle the fires which caused 100% fire damage to both cars and damage to the house exterior and front door.
At 05.02hrs firefighters were called to another car fire in Briarswood, Rhosrobin, and used one hose reel and one set of breathing apparatus to extinguish the fire, which also caused damage to the porch and guttering of the property.
The fires are thought to have been started deliberately.
Paul Scott, Community Safety Manager for Wrexham and Flintshire, said: “This type of irresponsible behaviour is completely unacceptable, and it was very fortunate that no one was hurt, especially considering the proximity of the fires to the properties.
“Deliberate fires are a serious form of anti-social behaviour with potentially lethal consequences and we are working closely with the Police and WCBC to tackle the problem.
“We would encourage anyone with information on arson to call 101, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
