Police are investigating a series of arson attacks in which a car and a bus were destroyed.
The three incidents in the early hours of Sunday in Chippenham, Wiltshire, are being linked by officers.
The first attack took place in Chelwood Close shortly after 1.30am when a black Honda Civic was set alight, destroying the vehicle.
Shortly afterwards, CCTV inquiries revealed that a bus parked at the Olympiad leisure centre in Sadlers Mead had been set alight.
The bus was also destroyed and the building nearby was damaged.
“These senseless acts of criminal damage will have caused thousands of pounds worth of damage, including destroying a school bus.
“Our inquiries are progressing at pace in the town and I would urge anyone with information to call us immediately on 101.
“I would like to reassure our communities we will be putting as much resource into this as we can to locate those responsible.”
