Brandon Police are concerned after a trio of vehicle fires in the City.

First, two vehicles were hit in the 700 block of McDiarmid Avenue over the weekend.  It's uncertain when the fires were set, but the damage was limited to the interior and to smoke damage.  Both were discovered after the fact.

Then early Monday morning a truck was hit in the 1000 block of Russel Street.  It happened between 2:00 a.m. and 2:30 a.m.  A witness observed a suspect start a fire in the truck cab, then taking off.  The witness was able to extinguish the fire.  In this case, the suspect lit a can of gas.

It's unknown if there's any relation between the three incidents.

Anyone with information to these fires is encouraged to contact Brandon Police Service.
