Appeal for information following caravan fires in Southampton

Press release   •   Dec 05, 2018 16:10 GMT

Officers are investigating after two caravan fires in four days.

The first was on Sunday 2 December on Burns Road and happened just after 11pm.

The second occurred this morning (Wednesday 5 December) at 6.29am on Byron Road.

Officers are treating both incidents as arson and are reviewing previous arson reports which may be linked. Specifically the series in August where cars, caravans and motorhomes were burnt out, totalling 13 incidents between August 3 and August 24.

Luckily no one was injured during either of these incidents, however fires like this have the capacity to get quickly out of control and put lives in danger.

Please call 101 if you know who might be responsible for these fires, before someone gets seriously hurt.

Anyone with information into the fire on Burns Road should quote 44180450717.

Anyone with information into the fire on Byron Road should quote 44180453582.
