Appeal after £20,000 arson attack at car sales garage

Police are appealing for information after a fire caused over £20,000 worth of damage at a car sales garage on the outskirts of Lancaster and Morecambe.

Two officers on patrol spotted the fire at the Hargreaves Garage on the White Lund industrial Estate at 11.43pm on Monday (May 24 2010)

Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service were able to quickly contain the blaze, but not before it has caused £20,000 worth of damage to four cars parked outside on the forecourt. A nearby warehouse was also damaged by the flames.

DC Tim Dodgson, of Lancaster CID, said: “I would ask anyone who may have seen anything suspicious in the surrounding area, prior to or just after the time of the fire, to get in touch with us.”
