Police are investigating after another car was burnt out in Orange during the early hours of Wednesday morning, raising concerns as it became the latest in a spate of vehicles that have been torched across the city in recent months.
Emergency services were called to the blaze just after 3am on Wednesday morning where they discovered a BMW - confirmed to have been stolen - well alight after being dumped in a park off Adina Crescent, in East Orange.
The car was completely destroyed, with Fire and Rescue NSW crews needing about 30 minutes to extinguish the blaze due to the vehicle's awkward position in the park, crews required three full lengths of hose to reach the vehicle.
Wednesday morning's incident adds to the growing list of car fires across Orange in recent months and comes three weeks after a vehicle was burnt out in Kurim Avenue, just a couple of streets over from Adina Crescent.
Emergency services have been forced to deal with at least half a dozen vehicle fires so far this year, with the first reported on January 1 followed by several others in February and March.
A number of those incidents have been reported in East Orange, including one at Glenroi Avenue and two in McNeilly Avenue, however despite the similar circumstances surrounding many of the fires, it remains unconfirmed if they are linked in any way.
Just hours earlier Fire and Rescue crews along with police also attended another incident in the area, with a bin fire reported at the back of the Orange Homemaker Centre.
Firefighters responded to calls at 9.44pm on Tuesday night, discovering at least one dumpster alight. Police are also investigating that incident.
