Police are seeking the public’s help after two suspicious fires caused significant damage at a Dandenong South yard in Victoria. Authorities reported that the initial fire took place at a business on Kirkham Road on February 17, around 1:30 a.m.

According to police, suspects arrived in a black Audi sedan, breached the business’s entrance gate, and set fire to the cabin of a semi-trailer inside the yard. This incident resulted in the destruction of one truck and damage to two others.

A second incident on March 3, just after 1:20 a.m., involved similar tactics at the same location. This time, the perpetrators used a black Ford sedan, cut the lock to the yard gate, and deliberately set a Scania prime mover on fire, affecting two additional trucks.

The culprits fled in the Ford sedan, leaving behind approximately $1,000,000 in damages. To aid in their investigation, police have released footage of the vehicles involved and are urging anyone with information to come forward.
