Tow truck 'turf war' flares up in York Region

York Regional Police

York Regional Police say two tow trucks were set on fire this week roughly a day apart.

The most recent incident was reported in Aurora, near Hartwell Way and William Graham Dr.

Fire crews were called there around 5:00am Tuesday on reports that a tow truck was burning.

On Monday, firefighters in Markham responded to reports of a tow truck on fire in a parking lot near Highway 404 and 19th Avenue.

Calls for help came in around 7:00am.

There were no injuries reported in both incidents but investigators believe the fires were set on purpose.

It was just over a week ago that a tow truck was set on fire in a residential driveway in Aurora.

In December, there were at least 7 tow truck fires across the Toronto region over one weekend.

Earlier that month, at least 3 bullets were fired at a tow truck in York Region.

Authorities want anyone with information to contact York Regional Police or Crime Stoppers.
