Neighbours’ fears after third Dundee garage fire in a week

Neighbours’ fears after third Dundee garage fire in a week

Worried residents have spoken of their concern after a nearby garage was hit by fire for the third time in a week.

Police have launched an investigation into the spate of blazes at the now-vacant site on Fyffe Street, Dundee.

Firefighters were called to the former Fyffe’s Car Services at about 7.30pm on Tuesday. That followed two similar incidents last week an ongoing problem that has forced owner David Fyffe to move to new premises on Dock Street.

“We moved out of the premises because it kept getting set on fire,” Mr Fyffe said.

“It has happened three times since last week now but this was the first time that the fire service had to be called. The police reckon it’s kids climbing on the roof and setting it alight.”

Fire crews were able to extinguish the latest blaze using a hose reel.

Neighbour Shazia Shamim (30), of Easson’s Angle, said: “The woman upstairs heard the fire engines and came down and knocked on our door to tell us what was happening.

“The firemen came into the close and went through the back door and through our garden to get on to the garage roof. It’s not the first time it has happened and it is quite scary because our garden backs right on to the garage.”

Nasreen Aziz (35), also of Easson’s Angle, said: “I heard the sirens and looked out of the window and saw what was going on. It made me really worried because it’s so near to the house.

“I thought the fire might come over here. I want it secured so that it can’t happen again.”

Police are appealing for witnesses to Tuesday’s fire.

Officers are also continuing to make inquiries into reports of separate blazes that happened at some point between 5pm on Thursday January 24 and 7.30am on Friday January 25, and at about 7.20pm on Tuesday January 22.

Anyone who thinks they may have seen something suspicious should contact police on 0300 111 2222. Alternatively, information can be passed on anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
