A rubbish truck parked outside homes in a residential Tauranga street was set alight overnight.

The truck had been parked on Surrey Grove, Merivale, when emergency services were alerted to it on fire, acting Senior Sergeant Tristan Murray said.

The car believed to be stolen was also torched last night.

Tauranga and Greerton firefighters responded to calls of the car on fire on Devon St, Greerton about 12.50am.
