A spate of car fire in Flaxmere in Hawke's Bay has sparked a police investigation.

Between midnight and 3am on Saturday police attended two vehicle fires on Margate Ave and one on Diaz Dr.

They had already been investigating several suspicious fires in the suburb and think they may all be linked.

All of the vehicles were parked on streets and two were severely damaged.

Police would like to hear from anyone who has information.

Hawke's Bay Today reports a car was set on fire by a Molotov cocktail on Flaxmere Ave last Saturday and there had been another car fire in the same street a few days earlier.
