Artarmon NYE fire destroys 3 cars, damages 4

The new year started badly for seven Artarmon car owners, who were alarmed to find their cars destroyed or badly damaged from a fire when they returned to Artarmon’s Cameron Ave car park after the New Years Eve celebrations.

North Shore Local Area Command Police has started a crime investigation after being alerted to the fire on NYE.

Emergency services were called to the public car park just before midnight where they discovered three unattended motor vehicles engulfed in flames.

A BMW, Volvo and Pajero were completely destroyed by the fire, and four other cars sustained significant damage.

Chatswood Police leading senior constable Steve Balfour told the Gazette the incident was being treated as suspicious and forensic testing was continuing.

Anyone who may have seen anyone acting suspiciously around the car park on Cameron Ave just before midnight on NYE is asked to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
