“Upon the car being fully engulfed, it set off the dogs in the court and the neighbours and occupants have woken up to see the car on fire,” he said.

“They attempted to put the fire out and called the CFA.”

By the time Echuca CFA arrived, the fire was out.

“The car was partially damaged,” Det. Snr Constable Wickham said.

We are checking with neighbours for CCTV to see of there are further avenues we can follow up.”

Police are appealing for help from the public and ask anyone with information to contact them on 5483 1500 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
