The facade of this apartment block was damaged by fire which destroyed two cars in Triq Frangisk Sciberras in Mellieha early yesterday.

The incident took place at 2.45am.

The fire destroyed a Renault Clio and a Suzuki Alto, with the flames being so high that overhead cables had to be disconnected. The façade where the cars were parked caught fire but tenants were safely evacuated.

The fire was the second reported in Mellieha within an hour.

Another two cars were destroyed barely an hour earlier on the Mellieha bypass when a Mercedes Benz being driven towards Cirkewwa caught fire. It rolled down and came to rest against a crash barrier, with the flames also spreading to a Mazda 3.
