There have been several vehicles found on fire in the town in recent weeks, with police and fire services attending at least one incident.

At 10pm on the night of June 10, police and firefighters were called to Whinfield Road, where a small van was found to be well alight opposite the offices of Scottish Borders Housing Association.

The Selkirk fire engine attended and two firefighters donned breathing apparatus when dealing with the blaze and used two high pressure hoses to extinguish the flames.

Police Scotland informed us: “Police and fire service responded to reports of a vehicle on fire on Whinfield Road, around 10pm on June 10.

“The incident was treated as suspicious and police are following a positive line of enquiry, but are appealing for anyone who witnessed anything in the area to contact police immediately on 101.”

However, as far as another fire involving a car in Rogers Road, about a week previously, is concerned, neither the fire service nor police were able to confirm any details.
