PORTSMOUTH, N.H. (AP) - Police are investigating a pair of early morning vehicle fires in Portsmouth.

The first blaze was reported at about 2 a.m. Saturday on Chapel Street. The fire on the interior of the vehicle’s passenger side had been put out by the time police arrived.

The second fire was reported at about 4:30 a.m. on Melbourne Street. Police say the vehicle was fully engulfed in flames when officers arrived and has been deemed a total loss.

In addition, police say they received several reports Saturday of vehicles that had been gone through or had items inside them stolen or set on fire.

Portsmouth Police are asking anyone else who had their vehicle gone through to contact them.
