FIREFIGHTERS tackled a car fire in Wrexham which is thought to be the work of arsonists.

North Wales Fire and Rescue Service were called to Ridley View in Caia Park, Wrexham this evening at about 8.30pm to reports of a car fire.

One crew from Wrexham tackled the blaze using two hose reel jets.

The damage was confined to the car, however firefighters say the car seems to have been deliberately ignited.
