De­tec­tives are in­ves­ti­gat­ing two car fires in a Kar­ratha sub­urb at the week­end as a sus­pected case of ar­son.

The cars caught fire in the drive­way of a house in Cal­liance Way in Bayn­ton in the early hours of Sun­day, June 5. Both cars were de­stroyed. The prop­erty suf­fered mi­nor smoke dam­age.

West Pil­bara de­tec­tives are in­ves­ti­gat­ing the cause of the fires and be­lieve they were linked to crim­i­nal ac­tiv­ity.

De­tec­tive Se­nior Sergeant Jon Mun­day said col­lect­ing ev­i­dence was hard be­cause of the sever­ity of fire dam­age and urged peo­ple with any in­for­ma­tion to call the de­tec­tives or Crime Stop­pers on 1800 333 000.
