About 2am police responded to the Connorton Street blaze and arrived to a”completely destroyed” car.

A post on a Wagga community Facebook page shows a Holden Commodore ute well alight.

Wagga police duty officer Inspector Peter Robertson said two unidentified youths were seen running from the scene.

It follows a string of car fires in the Wagga area over the past two months.

“It is a concern to us,” Inspector Robertson said.

“We don’t know whether it’s linked, but we will investigate it.”

Inspector Robertson said it helped for property owners to make themselves a “small target” for thieves, which includedlocking doors, keeping valuables in safe storage and parkingcars off the street.

“Thieves will always take the easiest avenue.”
