A blue Vauxhall Astra was deliberately set alight by arsonists in Corby.
The car was severely damaged in the blaze in Brinkhill Walk some time between midnight and 12.20am yesterday (Sunday).
A grey Fiat Punto was also damaged in the fire which was just three metres from a house whose door and plastic panelling were distorted through heat damage.
A police spokesman said: “Fire service colleagues said an accelerant was used to ignite the vehicle which was parked at the time.”
