Authorities are investigating a suspicious fire in which an abandoned car was set ablaze tonight.

Fire crews were called out to Kairua Rd, in Tauranga, shortly before 8.30pm.

A northern fire communications spokesman said firefighters quickly doused the blaze, which left the car totally destroyed. There was no one found with or near the vehicle and there was no threat to any neighbouring properties, the spokesman said.

Fire crews were treating the blaze as suspicious.
