Rosslyn Bay fire destroys car

A FIRE that destroyed a car and burnt the side of another in Rosslyn Bay is being treated by police as suspicious.

Senior Sergeant Bob Barclay, from Yeppoon Police, said a 000 call was made around 4.30am yesterday by a witness who heard a continuous horn sounding and then saw flames coming from a vehicle parked in the Keppel Bay Marina carpark.

Police and fire crews arrived to find one car well alight and the fire threatening two other vehicles.

The car was destroyed in the fire.

A second vehicle had extensive damage to the driver’s side from the fire.

Senior Sergeant Barclay said investigations showed the fire started within the cabin of the first vehicle.

“The fire is currently being treated as suspicious and investigations are continuing,” Senior Sergeant Barclay said.

Police are also investigating a number of break-and-enters in recent days.

Senior Sergeant Barclay said a petty cash tin was taken from 10 Commandments in Jabiru Drive sometime between 5.30pm on Monday afternoon and 5am on Tuesday.

A rock was used to smash the front door to give the intruder entry.

A similar incident occurred at the Northside Projects office in Fairfax Court.

A rock was used to smash a window in the building between 5pm Monday and 8am Tuesday to allow entry, but nothing was taken.
