Whitehawk hit by ten fires in night of arson
An investigation is under way into a series of arson attacks on parked cars and motorbikes in the Whitehawk area of Brighton.
At 2am today a motorcycle was torched in Limney Road. The heat of the blaze smashed the owner's windows.
Firefighters from Roedean Community Fire Station said an unsuccessful attempt was also made to set a car nearby.
At about 4am the crews were called to Pett Close, where a caravan was said to be on fire.
On the way there they found a car and a motorcycle on fire in Sompting Close.
Firefighters from Preston Circus dealt with those blazes while Roedean's crews continued to Pett Close.
There they found flames from the caravan had spread to a motorbike, a fence, car and a van outside a house.
Altogether the crews dealt with ten fires.
Sussex Police have confirmed they are treating the blazes as arsons.
Officers were calling at people's homes to gather information this morning.
