It was another busy evening for local firefighters as two cars were set alight in Ballarat.

Fire crews were called to the first fire on Kiewa Road in Nerrina around 10:15pm to find the car engulfed in flames, before crews got the blaze under control a short time later.

Just 15 minutes later, crews were then called to the scene of another car fire on Stanley Street in Ballarat North, with the car well alight by the time they arrived.

It comes after a number of cars were set alight in Ballarat in a 24 hour period yesterday.

Police ask anyone with information about the fires overnight to contact Ballarat Police Station or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
