Car fires keep firemen busy

It was not a good night for cars as two vehicles were burnt before the sun could rise on Saturday, one in Limassol and the other old Nicosia.

At around 5am, a 26-year-old called the fire service when he noticed that a car parked in an open field in Limassol, was on fire. The car belongs to a 73-year-old man and was in the 26-year-old’s care for fixing. The car, worth €500 before the fire, was totally destroyed by the blaze.

Limassol CID concluded the fire was the result of arson after finding flammable material at the site.

Earlier, at around 2am, another car, this time in old Nicosia, was seen on fire. The car, worth around €800, is owned by a company. The fire service arrived on the scene but not before another car parked next to the first one was also damaged.

Nicosia CID said the exact cause of the fire could not be determined but ruled out any foul play.
