The city of Oss is being plagued by car fires. A Renault Clio going up in flames on Tollenstraat early on Wednesday morning, marked the 19th car fire of the year in the city. The police are baffled, the Telegraaf reports.

The police have been investigating the car fires in Oss for months. "This year we have had 19 car fires in the city of Oss. In most cases we assume arson, although that could not be established with every fire", the police said.

Every fire is first investigated separately. "What was the cause? Who was the owner? Are there conflicts?" The police also always talk to people in the neighborhood and look for relevant camera footage. 

The police ask residents of Oss to be extra vigilant and to share any information they may have.
