Car Explosion in Peebles

A car was found in the outskirts of Peebles on the night of 7th of June. The intensity of the blaze has led investigators to believe foul play was to blame.

A phone call to the emergency services in the early hours of the night alerted fire and police services to the blaze.  The unidentified car was so badly melted and ripped apart it was impossible to find its true make or any identifying marks to trace its owner.

Investigators could not confirm if any human remains were found, the heat and violence of the explosion made this difficult.  They could confirm that the intensity of the blaze along with identifiable patterns meant that this was a deliberate act and not vehicle failure.

If anyone has any information about the incident they should contact the police immediately.
