Two car fires over holidays
INVESTIGATIONS have begun after two car fires in Skelmersdale.
In the first incident a car was set on fire as families celebrated Boxing Day last week.
One fire engine was sent to the blaze, in Blythewood, at about 1.42pm and used a hosereel jet to put the fire out.
Just days later, crews were called to another fire involving a car parked on the roadside of Standside Park.
No-one was hurt in either incident but firefighters believe both blazes were arson and informed Lancashire police.
The fires are the latest in a long list of similar arson attacks in the town this year, which have angered the town’s residents.
