Police probe suspicious fires

The arson squad is investigating two suspicious car fires that spread to nearby homes in Westminster overnight and links to an earlier blaze in a nearby park.

Fire crews were called to Salmar Way about 1am when a car parked next to a unit was set alight. The blaze destroyed the vehicle and also spread to the property, causing significant damage.

More than two hours later another car, parked in a carport adjoining occupied units, was set alight. The fire, about 3.20am, again spread to the adjoining unit and caused extensive damage.

Fortunately no one was injured in either blaze.

Police are also investigating links to a fire lit in a palm tree at a park in Edale Way about 11.30pm last night. The park connects Edale Way with Salmar Way.
