Echuca Criminal Investigation Unit is searching for information about a car fire on Charles St, Rochester, on Thursday.
Detective Sergeant Brendan Murphy said the fire, which destroyed the car, was believed to be deliberately lit.
Three fire trucks and a police crew attended a home in Charles St about 10.45pm, and found a Suzuki sedan, parked in the carport, engulfed in flames.
Rochester fire brigade incident controller Luke Warren said residents were home at the time of the blaze.
‘‘They were standing on the veranda clearly disturbed to see the car on fire,’’ he said.
He said the fire was close to the house so the primary concern was to protect the property.
Mr Warren said minor damage was caused to the side of the house.
He said it took 20 minutes to control the blaze and the fire brigade was on scene for an hour.
