Police in Airdrie are appealing for information after a car was set on fire in Plains.
Around 9.05pm on Monday, 20 September, officers received a report of a car on fire on Arondale Road in Plains. The fire was extinguished by the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service and nobody was hurt as a result.
Substantial damage was caused to the vehicle, a black Ford Fiesta ST, as a result of the fire which is being treated as suspicious.
Detective Constable Lyndsay McKinnon of Lanarkshire CID said: “We are appealing for information from members of the public relating to this deliberate fire.
"Thankfully no one was injured as a result of this reckless act. But I would like to stress how dangerous wilful fireraising is and discourage anyone from setting a fire deliberately and know that officers will always investigate any report robustly and thoroughly.
“If you saw anything suspicious and have any information or were in the area and recording via dashcam, please check your footage for anything of relevance and contact police as soon as possible.”
Anyone with information is asked to contact Police Scotland on 101, quoting incident 3700 of 20 September, or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
