Just after 9pm, the occupants of a home on Berwick Street were alerted by neighbours that their vehicle was on fire out the front.


Over the next 15 minutes, a further three vehicles were set on fire, as well as a trampoline and a bin in nearby streets. A man was seen in this area at the time, acting suspiciously.
