At around 11.35 p.m, a second tip-off was given that another 3 vehicles, a Ford Focus, a Mercedes and a Toyota, had been torched in front of Block 319.
At 00:45 a.m., the police received a call about another four vehicles that had been set ablaze in Sofia's Mladost-2 district, this time a Fiat Punto, a Skoda Octavia, a Volvo, and an Opel Astra.
