A BLAZE ripped through two vehicles on a city street.

Fire crews from St Mary's and Hightown fire station were called to Edelvale Road in West End, Southampton when a box van caught fire.

They worked for more than an hour from 3.15am today to put out the blaze which destroyed most of the vehicle and spread to a small van parked next to it.

Nobody was in either parked vehicle and no one was injured.

Crews used two breathing apparatus, a main jet and a hose.

It's unclear what caused the fire.

There was also a fire in Hood Road last night, and last week all the trees down cutbush lane that were in moorlands school were set alight, and round the corner the moorlands community centre has been set fire to twice. It is getting ridiculous. These happen in the middle of the night, we really need more patrols, CCTV, just anything to catch the culprits.

As a resident this is awful. I witnessed the actual fire but not the actual cause and being so close to home this needs to be taken seriously. We can not be sure that this an arson attack, however seeing as there have been so many lately at the community centre, in cutbush lane by my daughters school and now possibly in hood road this problem needs to be addressed as quickly as possible before it gets worse or someone gets hurt.

You brought the strike up though, firefighter hater that you are! Are you police? Armed services? Or someone just that jealous that you just spread hate about things you know very little about. You know no facts just spread lies. Green eyed monster I think. Very sad indeed.

Well done chaps ! Something is on fire and you put it out, cracking job.
Imagine if the police or ambulance services made as much fuss every time they did their job ?

It wasn't close to my home so obviously (by your standards) it doesn't need to be taken seriously.

My bets are on Mr c##t being a retained/ part time fire fighter or whatever you call them. A lot of hatred there so let's hope they aren't in the service..
