JETTY residents were woken early this morning by a car fire, which is suspected to have been deliberately lit.  

A Ford Falcon sedan was reported stolen and apparently taken on a joyride before it was set on fire in Edgar St, police said.

Police were told a vehicle was heard doing loud burn-outs behind the Pet Porpoise Pool around 3am.

Coffs Harbour Fire Station officer Nat La Macchia said the car fire was called in by residents in the street at 3.20am.

"Firefighters were on scene a short time later and found the vehicle well alight," station officer La Macchia said.

"The fire took a short time to bring under control and extinguish."

Investigating officers are making inquiries with the owner.

Anyone with further information should call Coffs Harbour Police via Crimestoppers on 1800 333 000.
