Someone said yesterday of the local spate of fires that such things come in threes – that certainly appears to be the case as in the early hours of Saturday, 29th October 2016 a car was set on fire deliberately in a wooded area near Clayhanger Bridge, Brownhills.

This follows the other fires this week at the former Terrace Restaurant and the stables near Whitehorse Road.

The Aldridge Fire Station feed tweeted at 12:43am:

The Advertiser beat me to it today and carry this report which can be read in full with more pictures at their site:

Crews extinguished the blaze, which completely engulfed the car, identified as a Fiat Punto.

The car, which was down a bank, had been deliberately set on fire and was being considered a case of arson, a spokesperson for West Midlands Fire Service told the Advertiser.
