SONGKHLA: Two vehicles were set on fire at a house in Thepha district of this southern province in the early hours of Wednesday.
The arsonist struck around 2am in tambon Tha Muang, setting fire to the front section of both vehicles - a pickup truck and a sedan. The vehicles were parked underneath the house, which is raised on piles.
Police and security officers were called to the house and forensic officers were collecting evidence.
Initially, police thought it unlikely the attack was related to the ongoing southern unrest. They gave more weight to a personal conflict involving the house owner and a neighbour.
House owner Romlee Yeemanbai was not inside the house during the attack.
Mr Romlee and the neighbour will both be called in for questioning, police said.
