Cars burned two streets apart in suspicious fires

CAR fires at two homes in Tewantin in the early hours of Tuesday morning are being treated as suspicious.

About 4am fire fighters were called first to Ward St, Tewantin, and later Hendry St, where cars parked in front of homes were well alight.

Queensland Fire and Emergency Service Noosa station officer Merv Bonnell said in Ward St the vehicle engulfed in flames was parked partially under the verandah of the home.

"There was some damage to the structure as well," he said.

"It was minor damage to the house railing and the verandah."

The home owner was trying to put out the blaze using a garden hose when fire fighters arrived.

They made quick work of extinguishing the fire, but were immediately called to another home two streets away, in Hendry St, where they found another car well alight.

The cause of the fires is being treated as suspicious and will be investigated.
