FIRE thugs have torched six cars in the same street in North Glasgow.

Police and fire services were called to the scene in Keppochhill Road, Springburn, at around 1.30am on Friday, August 19.

Four cars were damaged by fire and a further two suffered heat damage.

Luckily no-one was injured during the incident.

Police are appealing for anyone with information on the fires to contact them.

Constable Luke Johansson, from Baird Street Police Office, said: “The cars were all parked on the street and are individually owned, so it would appear that rather than people being specifically targeted, this was wanton vandalism.

“Thankfully, no-one was hurt in this incident, but it was very dangerous as the front of the cars were well ablaze when the fire service arrived. It could have resulted in serious injury.

“It also causes considerable inconvenience to those involved, not to mention the financial implications.”

He added: “Officers are currently checking CCTV from the area and carrying out door-to-door enquiries to try and identify those responsible.

“I would also ask that anyone with information contact Baird Street Police Office on 0141 532 4100 or details can also be passed in confidence to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”

Cars being set on fire has been a problem in the past in the North Glasgow area.

The fire service has been working with partners to address the vandalism, which puts lives at risk by tying up vital resources.
