Car Blazes Leaves Families Terrified Norway Will ‘Go Up in Flames’ as Malmo Attacks Spread
In a shocking video the vehicles can be seen burning out as firefighters battle to put out the flames.
The incident happened in Mortensrud, in Oslo, a quiet area of the Norwegian capital with many families.
Several neighbours witnessed the blaze and one expressed they were now scared the city would end up like Sweden, which currently has more than 50 areas listed as “no-go zones” due to car fires and unprecedented levels of crimes.
The local, who asked to remain anonymous, said: “It’s only a matter of time before [the violence] spreads, I have no doubt about it.”
The incident was filmed by Bkazej Bonin after his wife alerted him to the fire.
Mr Bonin said: “I was about to go to bed when my wife said two cars were on fire outside the block.”
It is believed the fire started on the hood of one car and spread to the second vehicle.
Witnesses said two people were seen fleeing the scene after the fire erupted and police have detained one man in his 20s.
Mother of two, Jeanette Pettersen said the thought that someone might have burned out the two BMW’s on purpose was scary.
The suspected arsonist attack, which happened just before midnight night to Tuesday, comes as Sweden and Denmark have been plagued with a series of car fires.
Express.co.uk reported in September that police in Malmo, in south Sweden, were desperately trying to re-establish control over the city.
Denmark police have also had their hands full with thugs wrecking havoc with more than 200 vehicles having been destroyed in less than nine months.
