A car was destroyed in a suspected arson attack in Great Hollands last night.
Firefighters were called to Turnberry at around 1.30am to find the Vauxhall Corsa, which was parked in a communal parking area, had been set alight.
The car was parked next to a fence and a shed, which the flames spread to, causing serious damage.Firefighters from Bracknell and Wokingham wearing breathing apparatus and using hoses put out the fire.
The flames and heat also caused damage to a van and another car nearby, but did not spread inside.
The crews managed to extinguish the fire by around 3am.
Firefighter Steve Blackman, from Bracknell Fire Station, said: "It was quite a bad one.
"We're still investigating but we think it was deliberately set on fire.
"It spread quickly to a nearby fence and caused damage to someone's shed.
"Fortunately though we we were able to get it under control before it caused real damage to the other cars."
