A FAMILY was left devastated after arsonists torched their car.
The blaze started shortly after midnight yesterday morning in Tower View, Caia Park.
The family involved – three adults, a four-year-old boy and four-week-old baby girl – were all asleep at the time.
The daughter of the car owner, who asked not to be named, said: “A neighbour who was outside saw that a fire had started and banged on our door to tell us about the danger. We would like to thank him for his help.
“I looked out of the window and already about half the car was well alight. The flames were very high. We were worried the fire could spread.
“The fire brigade were called and arrived here quickly.
“They did a good job but so much damage had already been done that the car was wrecked. It couldn’t be saved and there was a baby pram in there as well.
“We are now contacting our insurance company.
“My father needs the car to get to work, he will now rely on lifts.
“Our four-year-old has a high temperature at the moment, if we need to travel to see a doctor or go to the hospital we will have to order a taxi.”
The woman said the family had no idea why the Ford Focus was set alight.
A spokesman for North Wales Fire and Rescue Service said the blaze was reported shortly after midnight.
The cause was deliberate ignition.
l On Sunday night firefighters attended a skip fire where controlled burning had been left unattended.
The fire took place on the Rhosddu Industrial Estate, Rhosrobin, at about 6.20pm.
The fire crew used one hose reel to put the flames out.
