POLICE fear an Ipswich garage was targeted by an arsonist today after a car was set alight on its forecourt.

The blaze broke out at Cattermoles garage in West End Road at 5.07am.

The fire also caused slight damage to the property but fortunately did not engulf the building.

A window of the workshop at the premises, was shattered by heat from the blaze.

A member of staff at the garage, which was open for business as usual today, added that the Rover 620 had probably been written-off by the fire.

A spokeswoman for Suffolk Fire Service confirmed the blaze was being treated as suspicious and that police had been informed.

Earlier in the day firefighters were sent to another car fire in Lattice Avenue, Ipswich, just before 1am.
