Police do not believe a vehicle that was torched at Moira Park south of Shepparton was connected to a large number of burglaries committed across the weekend.
Firefighters were called to a report of a car on fire at about 4.30
The vehicle was already well alight when they arrived.
Police believe the car was used to perform doughnuts and had crashed into several trees before it was disabled.
It was then deliberately set alight and destroyed.
There was no sign of any driver or passengers by the time the CFA and police arrived.
The number plates had been removed and the vehicle identification number tampered with to prevent identification of the vehicle.
Police are still to establish if it was a stolen vehicle.
Meanwhile, police across the region are still compiling the details of up to 15 burglaries committed in Shepparton and other towns as far north as Cobram.
A number of businesses in south Shepparton were targeted, but investigations are continuing to establish whether they are all linked.
