Police and the fire service are investigating how a police car parked outside the Hamilton East station caught fire.

Fire officers were called to the scene just after 8pm following reports from the public. No one was inside the vehicle at the time and there were no injuries.

Northern fire communications spokeswoman Megan Ruru said a crew was there for about half an hour.

"It was just the one car involved and we had a number of callers reporting that it was a cop car."

Ms Ruru said the fire service and police were investigating as the blaze was being treated as suspicious.
