FIREFIGHTERS tackled two car fires started by arsonists.
Police are investigating after the attacks during Wednesday night and the early hours of yesterday morning.
North Wales Police spokesman Michael McGivern said at this stage it is too early to say whether the incidents are linked.
The first fire was reported at Tan Y Bryn in Caia Park just before 9pm on Wednesday.
The second was at Y Ddol in Bersham at 1.13am yesterday.
The car that was set on fire at Tan Y Bryn was a blue Peugeot hatchback. The vehicle’s owner, who did not want to be identified, said it caught fire quickly.
“I was at home when I heard some shouting. I went to take a look and saw that my car was on fire,” he said.
“I phoned for the fire brigade but the blaze spread so fast. I don’t know who would have done this.”
Cllr Ronnie Prince, who represents Cartrefle ward on Wrexham Council, said: “There is concern about the number of car fires which are taking place.
“People are worried that someone could be badly injured as a result of one of these incidents.”
A spokesman for North Wales Fire Service said the cause of both incidents was deliberate ignition.
Mr McGivern asked for anyone who has information on the attacks to get in contact with North Wales Police by dialling 101.
l Firefighters also attended another arson incident in the Wrexham area on Wednesday night. A quantity of undergrowth was the target at Delamere Avenue in Gwersyllt at 8.20pm.
A spokesman for North Wales Fire Service added: “The cause was deliberate ignition.”
