Cars damaged in arson attack leading to firefighters warning about car parking
Two cars were damaged in an arson attack in Bradford this morning.
A Citroen C3 that was parked on Pyrah Street, Wyke, was set alight at about 4.30am.
The engine and the front end of the vehicle were significantly damaged.
The flames also scorched and melted the front bumper of a Peugeot 306 that was parked next to the Citroen.
Crew commander Dave Jones, of Odsal fire station, said the Citroen was “probably a write-off”.
Fire crews were delayed getting to the scene, leading to crew commander Jones issuing a plea to people who live on narrow streets.
“We urge people to park their vehicles sensibly overnight on tight roads,” he said.
“We struggled getting to this fire because of the way some cars were parked.”
