Police are appealing for witnesses following two deliberate fires in Prestatyn

North Wales Fire and Rescue Service alerted police to the first incident where a fire had been deliberately started in a wheelie bin on Ffordd Onnen in Prestatyn at 8.45pm last night, Tuesday 10th April. A second call then came in at 9.15pm reporting a fire in a barn containing livestock, on Gronant Road.

Sgt Tex Green said: “Fortunately no-one was injured as a result of these fires, which we believe were started by juveniles, but the consequences could have been serious had it not been for the early intervention of those who alerted us to the incidents.”

“Fires not only pose a risk to the individuals involved, but also the officers attending. We need to impress on those responsible that deliberate fires endanger lives,” he added.
