The residents of a house in Ballybofey were forced to flee during the night after a car was set on fire outside.
The alarm was raised in the early hours of Monday morning when a car in the driveway of a house at Glenview Park was set alight.
The blaze was so severe that the front door of the house was blocked, forcing the residents to evacuate through the back door. No injuries were reported in the incident.
The fire was brought under control and an investigation is underway into the criminal damage caused. Witnesses are asking to come forward if they saw anything suspicious around the time of the fire – between midnight and 00.40am on Monday 24th June.
