Fire fight­ers tackle blaz­ing cars

Bray People - - NEWS -

TWO CARS were set alight within me­tres of each other in Bray last Mon­day night.

The first blaze was tack­led by fire fight­ers at Dun­cairn Ter­race at around mid­night, while the sec­ond took place at Wyn­d­ham Park at around 1.30 a.m.

The fires were ex­tin­guished quickly by fire ser­vice per­son­nel.

Gar­dai in Bray said that in at least one of those in­ci­dents, the per­pe­tra­tors had at­tempted to steal the ve­hi­cle be­fore set­ting it on fire.

A source at the scene said that the cars were parked out­side their own­ers' homes rather than aban­doned at those re­spec­tive sites.

Gar­dai were present at both fires and are in­ves­ti­gat­ing the causes of the blazes.

This fol­lows a spate of cars and other ve­hi­cles set on fire in the Bray and north Wick­low ar­eas in re­cent months.

A car was burned out in En­niskerry a week prior to this event, at the gates of Pow­er­scourt Es­tate.

Two spe­cial needs busses were en­gulfed by flames out­side Marino Clinic in Fe­bru­ary, as well as a car and a van parked out­side Home­land Fur­ni­ture in Bray.

Any wit­nesses who saw sus­pi­cious ac­tiv­ity in the ar­eas of Dun­cairn Ter­race, Quins­boro Road, Wyn­d­ham Park and the sur­round­ing ar­eas can con­tact Bray Garda Sta­tion on (01) 665300 or the garda con­fi­den­tial line on 1800 666 666.
