The Belconnen car BBQ

By johnboy - 27 December 2012 13

ACT Policing is seeking witnesses to three separate fires which occurred in Belconnen early this morning (Thursday, December 27).

Around 2.00am police were called to Howie Court in Condell Street, Belconnen, where a white Mitsubishi Triton Ute had been set on fire and extinguished by ACT Fire and Rescue.

Around 3.15am police attended the Oracle Apartments in Chandler Street, Belconnen, where three vehicles, a white Mazda 323 sedan, a white Mazda Protégé and a white Toyota HiAce Telstra van had received fire damage.

Around 6.05am police attended the rear of the former Australian Taxation Office at Cameron Avenue, Belconnen, where on arrival they observed two wooden pallets alight and four air conditioner units with fire damage. ACT Fire and Rescue attended and extinguished the flames.

Police are treating all three fires as suspicious.

Anyone who may have been in the Belconnen area at the time of the fires and can assist police with their investigation is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or at www.act.crimestoppers.com.au. Information can be provided anonymously.

There was a car-B-Q in the middle of the carpark at Kambah Pool last week. The burnt-out car has now been moved into one of the parking spots by persons unknown. No doubt it will stay there all summer, just when parking spots at that reserve are as rare as hen’s teeth.

That could be either a north sider or south sider as Northside is rather lacking in the outdoor swimming / beach deptartment.

If only they were all white commodores.

Lol. Yes. It was a RA subscriber who knows that over the Christmas and NYE break there usually isn’t a great deal of “news” to be posted on RA. I’ll go for white commodores next time ………

Are white vehicles any more expensive to insure? Surely a risk based insurance strategy would lead to premiums increasing for these colour devoid contraptions.

Missed golden opportunity for “car-b-q” headline.

Perhaps “Carby-Q” … but would have to be an older pre-EFI car.
