A CAR fire in Clady this week which spread to a second car and a nearby fence, appears to have been started deliberately, the fire service has said.
Police are consequently appealing for any information into the attack, which took place in the Urney Road area shortly before 9pm on Monday.
“Fire-fighters were called to a car fire, which had spread to a nearby fence and a second car,” a spokesperson for Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue Service (NIFRS) said.
“The second car fire was extinguished by neighbours prior to the arrival of fire crews. Fire-fighters wearing breathing apparatus extinguished the initial fire.
Appealing for information, PSNI Sergeant Robb said, “Shortly before 9pm it was reported that a vehicle parked outside a house in the area had been deliberately set alight. The car was destroyed.”
He continued, “Enquiries are continuing and we would appeal to anyone who saw anything suspicious in the area to contact police on 101 quoting reference number 1378 of 19/11/18.
“Alternatively, information can also be provided to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 which is 100 per-cent anonymous and gives people the power to speak up and stop crime.”
