A Deeside shelter has been destroyed in a deliberate fire.
Police are appealing for information about the incident, which happened at the back of Keithmuir Gardens in Drumoak at about 11pm on Friday.
Nobody was injured, but the shelter was completely burnt down.
Constable Marc Camus said: “This type of wilful fireraising only goes to harm the local community.
“There seems to have been little or no consideration for where else the fire may have spread or the danger it could have caused.
“The value of the damage has yet to be confirmed and I would encourage anyone who knows what happened or who saw any suspicious behaviour near to Keithmuir Gardens, Drumoak around the time to get in touch.”
Anyone with information should call 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
