FIREFIGHTERS were called to a road in South Norwood in the early hours of this morning after a car was set alight. A crew from Woodside fire station were able to stop the blaze from spreading from the black Mini after they were called to Carmichael Road at 1.45am today (Monday). Crew manager Steve Mewett said the owner of the vehicle told firefighters the boot window of her car had been broken into the previous day. Mr Mewett said: "We could find nothing to suggest an accidental ignition. It looks as if it was deliberate, but we have left it with the police. The owner was obviously upset." Firefighters brought the blaze under control quickly and left the scene after an hour. A fire engine from Norbury also attended but was not needed. The police are understood to be investigating the incident.
