THERE might have been a few arrests in recent weeks, but the spate of car fires seems to be continuing around the Ballarat region, with two more detected overnight.
The first car was found burned in Wilson Street Ballarat East just after 10pm, while the second was in bushland near Nerrina just after 5.30am.
On both occasions, car had been earlier reported stolen.
A Ballarat City Fire Station spokesperson said he was unsure whether the two fires were connected, as they happened a long way apart in both distance and time.
He said it was a growing frustration for CFA crews who were constantly being called to such event.
"These are all individual events, but what's most frustrating to me is the impact they are having on the person who has lost their car," he said.
"What an insurance company values the car is nowhere near what the person who owns it values it at.
"An insurance company might pay off $3000, but to many a car is worth much more than that, and if you're an older person, or a person who struggles and can't afford a new car, it's a horrible situation.
"That annoys me more than anything else because it is completely unnecessary."
Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 1800 333 000.
