Two cars destroyed in fire
Fire and police have launched an investigation after two cars were destroyed by fire in the early hours of this morning.
The alarm was raised just before 1am after the two vehicles, parked on Ord Road, in Paget were seen to be ablaze.
A spokesman for the Bermuda Fire & Rescue Service said that two fire trucks from the Hamilton and Port Royal stations were called to the scene.
The spokesman added: “Crews saw thick black smoke as soon as they turned onto Ord Road, off Southcote Road.
“On arrival at the fire, crews saw two cars fully engulfed in flames.”
Two firefighters wearing breathing gear put out the blaze, but the vehicles suffered extensive damage.
There has been a series of suspected arson attacks in the central parishes in recent months.
Police set up a special task force in March to investigate the spate of incidents, which involved buildings, vehicles and a playground.
Two people have been arrested as a result of police inquiries.
A police spokesman said an investigation into this morning’s fire was in its early stages.
He added: “No link has so far been established between that incident and the recent spate of fires in Pembroke Parish.
“The work begun by the task force set up to investigate those matters remains ongoing.”
Anyone with information on any of the incidents should call 211 or the main police number on 295-0011.
