An early morning vehicle fire in Wrexham was deliberate, fire chiefs have said.

North Wales Fire and Rescue Service received a call at 4.28am on yesterday reporting a car on fire to the rear of Trevenna Way.

One crew from Wrexham attended the scene and used two hose reel jets to bring the incident to an end shortly before 5am.

A woman who asked not to be named, and whose house was closest to the blazing car, said she was awakened at about 4.20am by her barking dogs: “I didn't hear anything myself but the dogs were barking and they woke me up. The car was already alight so I called the fire brigade and they got here in about ten minutes.

”I don't know whose car it was. The flames were quite big and I'm surprised that my fence didn't go up to be honest. 

”It's becoming normal which is ridiculous and last time it was a camper van about two weeks ago.”

A spokesman for North Wales Fire and Rescue Service confirmed the incident – which caused 100 per cent fire damage to the vehicle – was caused by deliberate ignition and did not result in any injuries.

The arson was the second such incident this week.

On Monday, an appeal was launched after another early morning vehicle arson in Wrexham.

North Wales Fire and Rescue Service received a call at 3.10am reporting a car on fire in Grove Road.

One crew from Wrexham was sent to the scene and used one hose reel jet to bring the incident to a close by 3.30am.
