Firefighters put out a car fire at Rambling Lane, Pembroke this morning. The car and five bikes were on fire when they arrived.

Police are appealing for witnesses to this morning’s fire in which a car and five motorcycles were destroyed.

Firefighters tackled the blaze on Rambling Lane, Pembroke, at around 4.30am, and were able to bring the fire under control before flames spread to a nearby apartment.

This afternoon a Bermuda Police Service spokesman said that the incident was being treated as “suspicious” and an investigation had been launched.

Any witnesses or members of the public who may have any relevant information are encouraged to call the main police telephone number 295-0011 or the anonymous Crime Stoppers hotline 800-8477.

This morning’s incident was the sixth vehicle fire in less than three months.

Three of the fires took place in a three-day period in December. A fourth fire occurred in Devonshire on New Year’s Eve, and a fifth car was destroyed in Sandys on February 20.

All six fires began late at night or in the early hours of the morning and were investigated by Bermuda Fire and Rescue.
