Last night at around 9pm another car was discovered ablaze in Caia Park.
The car was located at the rear of a residential property on Tan Y Bryn and we are told the fire service were in attendance promptly.
This morning a spokesperson for the fire service confirmed fire crews attendance at 8.57pm:-
“Fire crews attended a single vehicle fire yesterday evening. The vehicle was found with 100% damage to the engine and is thought to have been deliberately set alight.”
Later on, at 1.13am, fire crews attended a small vehicle fire in Bersham. This incident is also being treated as suspicious, with the fire appearing to have been deliberately started.
North Wales Police this morning confirmed they were contacted by the fire service around 9pm yesterday evening and were informed of the incident.
Kevin Jones, Arson Reduction Manager, said: “This type of criminal behaviour puts not only the lives of those carrying out the activity at risk but also the lives of firefighters attempting to extinguish the fire as well as any members of the public who may attempt to tackle such a fire. We are working closely with local policing teams to combat deliberate firestarting – arson is a serious crime and in conjunction with North Wales Police we will pursue prosecutions.”
They are encouraging anyone with further information to contact PC 1993 Colin Hughes at Wrexham Police Station on 101. Or alternatively call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
Aaron Smith sent us the above picture of the incident in Caia Park, taken shortly before the fire service arrived.
