The owner of the vehicle parked the car outside his property at around 9.15pm and was then made aware that it was on fire by a neighbour who saw an orange glow when passing their window.

The neighbour observed two males dressed in dark clothing, with their faces and heads covered running from the area where the car was parked.

They appeared to be young due to being fast and ran in the direction of the play park near to East Thomson Street.
