Arson attacks may be erupting in Malta’s capital city, Valletta after a car was set on fire, less than a week after a similar incident.
TVM reported that two vehicles ended up severely damaged by the flames, which broke out at 3:30 am on St Domenic’s Street in Valletta. Residents were evacuated from a nearby block of apartments.
A few days ago, a fire erupted on St Paul’s Street in Valletta after a car was set ablaze, leaving residents trapped inside a nearby building and four other cars damaged. The fire also happened in the early hours of the morning.
It is as yet unknown whether the incident was an accident or an arson attack, with investigations currently on-going.
However, a second burning car within just five days of one another is sure to raise suspicion.
Inquiries have been set up for both incidents.
