AN INVESTIGATION IS underway into another fire that occurred in the Buncrana area in Donegal early yesterday.

Gardaí confirmed to TheJournal.ie that an investigation has been opened into the fire which was discovered in the Hilltown area at 3.10am on Tuesday.

A car, tractor and turf shed were all targeted in what is another suspected-arson attack.

The area has been plagued by similar attacks over the past month with fears growing that there is an arsonist, or group of arsonists, on the loose.

A primary school, a caravan, a former HSE building, a farm and numerous empty houses have already been targeted. The incidents have all taken place after dark, between the hours of 11pm and 4am.
