A FIRE chief spoke today of his fear that a child may be injured by arsonists going on the rampage.

Hooligans destroyed three cars and garages in a nine-hour wrecking spree in an area at the rear of shops in Reynolds Road, Ipswich.

Assistant Divisional Officer Paul Seager said: "Our concern is that some poor innocent child could get hurt by these people. Those carrying out these fires stand a good chance of hurting themselves and others. They are not only destroying private property but are tying up public resources."

He continued: "If anybody knows anything about these fires we urge them to call Crimestoppers on 0800 555111 so we can catch them before they hurt someone."
