After a number of weeks of reprieve, firefighters were called to reports of a car fire in Black Hill overnight. 

CFA crews were called to the corner of Margaret Avenue and Walker Street around 11:30pm last night, arriving to find the car engulfed in flames.

It comes after another car was set alight on Saturday morning, around 8am in the Woowookarung Regional Park in Mount Clear.

Firefighters arrived to find the abandoned car well alight, before getting it under control a short time later.

Anyone with information about either car fire is urged to phone Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
