    Default Woken up at 12:30am to this.....

    ...talk about a shock..... .

    Got woken by the sound of the glass exploding and the alam/horn going off due to the wire's shorting out.

    This was parked about 4 doors away at a cross junction by my house.

    No idea who's it is but this thing was up in flames and the heat was intense! Its never been there before so still trying to do a personal investigation as to whats happened to it!

    Personally, I doubt that its an insurance job though, due to its age?

    Totally gutted....took the fire brigade about 20 mins to completely put it out.

    No police showed up though, is that normal?

    pretty normal for police not to turn up, what can they do? Couldn't do anything until it cooled down, it will be recovered for forensic examination but looking at it, they might not even bother doing that as the fire has gutted the inside. They'll do some enquiries with the owner and check for CCTV etc. Unless they find a witness/cctv I very much doubt there is much they can do.

    It's difficult I know but the fire will have destroyed any eveidence, really hard to detect this kind of crime.

    Whoever wanted to get rid of some evidence did a damn good job of it.

    The way the fire was last night, I dont think that car was far from exploding.
