Two food vans belonging to an Indian restaurant were today destroyed in a blaze, days after a nearby community restaurant was set on fire on the same street in Sydney.

The food vans were destroyed in the fire which police and fire fighters believe have been deliberately set alight, according to Sydney Morning Herald.

They found the vans belonging to Maya Da Dhaba on Cleveland Street burning at 2.30 a.m local time.

The fire fighters were able to extinguish the fire quickly but both vans were destroyed, the report said, adding that police was now looking at links between this incident and a blaze at another Indian restaurant The Copper Tiffin on July 5.

The Copper Tiffin is close to the Maya Da Dhaba.

It is believed that the restaurant had received a bomb threat days before the arson attack took place. On that occasion two people were seen running from the restaurant as fire engulfed the building.
