A Bermuda Fire and Rescue Service investigation has been launched after several cars went up in smoke at Parson’s Road in Pembroke early yesterday morning.

According to a spokesman, the BFRS dispatch got word of the blaze at 2.48am.

Michael Weeks, the national security minister, told the House of Assembly he had been called out to the scene to find four cars on fire.

“Many people were standing around and everybody was saying ‘enough’,” he said.

BFRS said two appliances from the Hamilton and Port Royal Stations were dispatched.

Nine fire personnel found the cars “fully engulfed” in flames.

The spokesman said firefighters used breathing apparatus and hoses to extinguish the fire, with no injuries reported.

The incident occurred hours after a shooting nearby at Middle Town Lane left four men injured.

Asked if anything might link the two, Darrin Simons, the Police Commissioner, said: “There is absolutely nothing that connects these two incidents.”
