POLICE are appealing for information after two incidents of wilful fireraising in Paisley.

Emergency services were called to premises in McKenzie Street at around 12.15am on Monday, where a blaze caused minor damage to the rear of the property.

Around the same time, police received a report of two vehicles on fire in a nearby yard, also in McKenzie Street.

Both vehicles were extensively damaged but nobody was injured during either of the incidents.

Police have confirmed both fires are being treated as deliberate and enquiries are ongoing to establish the full circumstances.

Detective Constable Barry Gourley, of Paisley CID, said: "Thankfully nobody has been injured as a result of this reckless behaviour.

"We are keeping an open mind that the two incidents may be connected and are appealing for anyone with information to come forward.

"I would ask anyone who was in the area at the time, and who may have seen anything suspicious, to get in touch.

"Anyone with information should contact officers via 101 quoting reference 0138 of Monday, May 23. Alternatively Crimestoppers can be contacted on 0800 555 111, where anonymity can be maintained."
