A Sunderland family are lucky to be alive after an arsonist attack on their car.
Michael Brown and his wife Danielle had finished watching TV when their BMW Park in their driveway caught fire.
The attack had caused damage the couple’s house and caused £4500 worth of damage to the car.
Neighbours rushed to help the family move the cars away from the fire, which was started to cause explosions.
The couple ensured that their children and family dog were safe.
The family believe men who were seen in a five-door silver or white VW Golf that was circling the area were the culprits.
Michael Brown has offered a substantial reward for people to catch the culprits that caused them such terror.
