Car and hedge are set on fire


A RESIDENT of the Meadow Vale estate in Deansgrange, Blackrock, was left distressed when their hedge and car were set alight recently.

Petrol was used to set the car on fire when it was parked alongside the house.

The incident occurred in the last week of June.

"The residents were left in a very distressed state," said a source.

"Their fear was that the house could have gone up in flames because it was so close.

"It is suspected that it was vandals at work but it's a very serious incident which could have caused a lot of damage.

"It's certainly not funny or something to be done lightly," they added.
