Yesterday, 14 February, police responded to three reports of vehicle fires:
Shortly after 1:20AM, officers responded to a report of a vehicle on fire at an address on Kris Anderson Way in Bodden Town. The fire was extinguished by officers from the Cayman Islands Fire Service and no damage to other property or injuries were reported.
At about 3:00AM, officers responded to a vehicle on fire in the parking lot of an address on School Road in George Town. A nearby building also received minor damage as a result of the fire, which was extinguished by Fire Officers. No injuries were reported.
Shortly after 12:30PM officers responded to a third vehicle fire at an address on Josephs Drive in West Bay. Fire Officers extinguished the fire and no injuries were reported.
At this time the fires appear to be unrelated. The fire which occurred in George Town has been confirmed to have been caused by an electrical fault in the vehicle. The other two fires are under investigation and police are appealing to anyone who may have witnessed either of these incidents or who may have any related information to contact their local police station.
