Sweden car arsons: Dog KILLED after being trapped inside

Follow us on social media!

In total, 12 cars were on fire in Swedish city Umeå this weekend. Inside one of the cars was the dog named Vera who sadly was killed in the fires.

Vera, a border collie, belonged to a woman who worked night shift and had brought her dog with her. The owner told SVT that the dog was very excited, so she left her in the car while she went inside to work as a care assistant.

She had brought the dog with her to work the night before, which the dog liked, so she brought her along this night as well.

After 1 a.m when the people she were caring for had gone to sleep, she went back outside again to take her 11 year old border collie inside, however she was met with a horrible scene.

The car was on fire.

Fire services were already on the scene and working to extinguish the fires.

The woman described how she was in a state of chock and panic and that this is the worst thing that has ever happened to her.

“When you know one’s pet is sitting there and burning up…That is a feeling that is horrible” she said.

“This is the worst thing that has happened to me. A car is replacable, but not a life”

A total of 12 cars were on fire in the city of Umeå last weekend and a garage was also on fire.

Police are investigating the fires as arson and are interested of tips from the public who may have seen anything on the scene.

As we have reported on earlier, car arsons have seen a dramatic increase in the last 20 years, with 1 457 cars set on fire in the year of 2017.

Just last month we reported that over 50 cars had been damaged by fire in just 1 week.
