Two car fires over hol­i­days

Ormskirk Advertiser - - Student Life -

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.
