    Hope you like your scooters as thin and crispy as your pizza.

    For the second time in less than a year, arsonists have destroyed an entire fleet of pizza delivery scooters outside Domino's Pizza on Darlinghurst Road, Darlinghurst.

    Police from Kings Cross Local Area Command are investigating the cause of the early morning fire which destroyed seven scooters outside the pizza franchise.

    Police confirmed that they are treating the fire as arson.

    The pizza business was not damaged but all seven scooters were destroyed.

    They're also investigating whether this morning's blaze is linked to a fire which destroyed eight scooters at the exactly same location, where Domino's delivery scooters are parked, in September last year.

    Detective Inspector Jason Weinstein confirmed that last year's investigation was ongoing and there were no suspects. "That investigation is still open," he said, and nobody had been charged.

    Anyone with information about the fire, or who may have seen anyone acting suspiciously in the area about that time, should contact Kings Cross Police or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

    So the question is, what would you call a scooter bonfire?
  2. Geez, you reckon they're related?
    Fucking elephant trackers...
  3. Could be started by a scooter shop...

  5. Should just go back through the records and see which pizzas were cold by the time they got delivered.
  6. I never cease to be amazed by how little of a scooter there actually is once all the plastic has been burnt off :D.

    A blaze of BeeWees? A volcano of Vespas?
  9. A pyre of pizza-pushers?
