An Aberdeen councillor has warned that repeated fireraising at a derelict building will “end up killing somebody”.
Councillor John Reynolds was speaking after the Grandholm Bowling Club was set alight once again.
The incident occurred between 11pm on Friday and 1am on Saturday.
The derelict building has been repeatedly targeted by firebugs and vandals since it closed last year.
Just last week police said they were looking to “engage and work together” with the community and fire brigade to stamp out the fireraising.
Mr Reynolds, who represents the Bridge of Don ward, said: “It’s really quite sad to see this happening in our city.
“It makes you wonder how they would react if someone set fire to their property.
“The person concerned will be known to other members of our community and I would urge them to contact Police Scotland on their confidential phone line and turn them in, before their antics go too far and end up killing somebody.”
Police are appealing for the public’s assistance to find the people behind the latest fire.
Investigating officer PC Claire Low, from the Bridge of Don community policing team, said: “Although the premises were unoccupied at the time of the incident, such thoughtless and reckless behaviour has the potential to put the safety of others and their properties at risk, as well as the obvious financial implications for the owner of the buildings.
“Such dangerous and anti-social behaviour by those persons responsible will not be tolerated.
“I’m appealing for information from anyone who may have seen or heard anything in the area, between 11pm on Friday May 25 and 1am on Saturday May 26 2018.”
Anyone with information is asked to contact Police Scotland on 101 quoting reference CF0124380518.
