Two cars were damaged by fire 20 minutes apart during the early hours of Monday in the Famagusta district, police said.
At around 2am in Sotira, a 26-year-old car owner’s mother called the fire service after she noticed her son’s car, which was parked in front of their home was ablaze. Fire-fighters extinguished the fire but not before damage had been caused to the rear of the vehicle.
Twenty minutes later, at around 2.20am, a car belonging to a 28-year-old woman, which was parked behind a nightclub in Paralimni caught on fire. The car was almost destroyed before fire-fighters were able to extinguish the blaze.
Investigations are due to take place later on Monday to establish the causes of both fires, police said.
