Fire crews have extinguished the smoldering remains of two more cars, continuing a recent surge in the number of vehicle fires in Griffith.
On Saturday, the RFS were called to Scenic Drive at about 3:20am, where a Holden Commodore sat blazing by the Rotary Lookout.
When the vehicle was extinguished it was so heavily destroyed the number plates and VIN number were unobtainable.
At 12:42am the next day, fire crews were called to Kidman Way at Tharbogang, where a Honda Civic appeared to have been set alight.
By the time crews arrived to the scene, the vehicle was completely destroyed and had almost completely extinguished itself.
An RFS captain told police the vehicle appeared to have been siphoned of fuel before it was ignited.
Murrumbidgee Police District Inspector Kim Traynor advised Griffith residents to ensure their personal vehicles are kept secure.
"Recently there has been a number of stolen vehicles which have been burned out when they have been recovered by police," Inspector Traynor said.
"We ask people to make sure they secure their vehicles as some have been stolen with the keys in the ignition or that they consider putting their keys away within their house to prevent theft."
RFS Inspector Jason Wall said he had noticed a slight increase in the number of car fires over recent weeks and advised residents to contact emergency services if they spot one.
"If people come across a car fire and there is no emergency services present dial 000, remain a safe distance from it and take note if they see anyone suspicious around the area," Inspector Wall said.
