Police in Famagusta and Limassol were on Tuesday investigating four separate arson cases involving six cars, which were badly damaged.

At Paralimini, police were looking into an arson attack involving three vehicles parked outside a house.

Police said the call came in at 1.30am with firefighters finding three cars in flames at the scene.

Preliminary examination of the scene determined that the blaze had been set deliberately. The cars belong to three different people leading investigators to believe that maybe one of them was the target but the flames spread to the other two vehicles.

At about the same time in Limassol, the fire service scrambled to put out a fire in a car belonging to a 53-year-old woman from Kato Polemidia.

The vehicle, which was parked outside her home, was badly damaged by the fire. The owner said she did not know who may be behind the arson.

At 4.30am, firefighters had to respond to two separate incidents involving car fires. The first car was one that was reported stolen by its owner and was found burning in an open parking lot on the corner of Nicos and Despina Pattihis and Spyros Kyprianou Streets.

The second vehicle belonged to a 48-year-old and was apparently set alight while parked in the Yermasoyia area.
