Foul play suspected in Faro fires

in Algarve · 02-08-2018 10:19:00 · 0 Comments

PJ police are investigating a string of incidents in and around Faro which saw a €21,000 car torched and a series of urban equipment set on fire, during the early hours of last Sunday morning.

Besides the high-cylinder BMW, bins and a bus stop were also set on fire. Faro firefighters received the first reports of fires at around 7am on Cidade de Hayward Avenue, coincidentally not far from where the fire station is located.
A bin and the BMW were found burning on the street, which is one of the main thoroughfares through Faro.
A short while later, another fire was reported in the Rio Seco area, on the way out of Faro towards Olhão. Post boxes and a bus stop were on fire, and in this instance the flames spread to a nearby spot of scrubland, causing a small wildfire.
No one was injured in the fires, which were initially being investigated by PSP police, but due to suspicion of arson, have been passed on to the PJ police.
