Car fires at a Rotorua hotel carpark are being treated as suspicious, police have confirmed.
Multiple cars were damaged by fire in the carpark of the Distinction Hotel on Fenton St about 4.30am today.
A police spokeswoman said the fire looked to have spread to at least two or three other cars in the car park.
"I understand all the cars were connected to the hotel, i.e. guests' cars. The fire is being treated as suspicious and inquiries are under way," she said.

This morning a fire investigator was at the scene, as well as police staff.
A reporter at the scene said the Distinction Rotorua Hotel car park was cordoned off.
He said he could see at least three burnt cars, one of which was "completely burnt out" and a tow truck was removing some of the cars.
More to come.
