Police in Aberdeen are appealing for information following suspicious shed fires

Whitestripes Path

Police are appealing for information following wilful fire-raisings to sheds in Bridge of Don last night.

Emergency services were alerted to two sheds on fire at Whitestripes Drive and Whitestripes Path.

A number of nearby homes had to be evacuated as fire crews attended the blazes.

The shed on Whitestripes Path was completely destroyed with damage also caused to a nearby house and garden fence. The shed at Whitestripes Drive sustained minimal damage.

PC Rory Saunders said: “We are treating these incidents as suspicious and would  appeal to anyone with information to come forward.

“Not only will there be financial implications for the victims involved, but it must have also been extremely frightening for those who were asked to leave their homes while the fire service made the area safe.”

If you have any information contact Police on 101 quoting incident numbers 3137 or 3168 of December 2, or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555111 if you would prefer to remain anonymous.
