Accidents and natural disasters: The police reported the fire around midnight on Friday night.

– The fire in the vehicle has been extinguished. It was parked outside. It is suspected that the fire was set, says operations manager Bjørn Gunnar Nysæter in the Oslo police district.

The police take matters very seriously on the night of Thursday, when there were five car fires in Kjelsås and Grefsen.

– We have not found a clear cause, but the strongest hypothesis is that they were set on, said operations manager Øyvind Schalla-Aasen to NTB last night on Thursday.

– The police are investigating the fires, which are seen in context. The police take these fires in densely built-up areas very seriously, said section leader Thomas Stange at the investigation section of the Oslo police in a statement later in the day.
