Ar­son at­tacks de­stroy cars and garages

Central Leader - - News -

Two garages were burned down in sep­a­rate ar­son at­tacks in the past fort­night.

Two cars were gut­ted in a sus­pi­cious fire at an Ep­som prop­erty dur­ing the early hours of last Tues­day morn­ing.

Ac­cel­er­ants may have been used in the blaze, says fire safety of­fi­cer Rus­sell Dick­son.

“Sam­ples have been taken to ESR to con­firm,” he says.

The Fire Ser­vice was called af­ter a neigh­bour spot­ted the flames. Fire­fight­ers were able to con­fine the blaze to the car­port.

In a sep­a­rate in­ci­dent, a garage was de­lib­er­ately set alight in Gif­ford Ave, Mt Roskill, on May 29.

Mr Dick­son says the slow­burn­ing fire was lit at the back of the build­ing, out of sight of res­i­dents.
