Three vehicles, including two buses, were set ablaze in different areas of the city on Monday, the 7th day of the countrywide blockade enforced by the BNP-led 20-party alliance.
Miscreants set a bus afire near Golap Shah Mazar at Gulistan around 9:55am, said sources at the Fire Service headquarters.
Later, fire fighters doused the blaze.
Another bus was torched by miscreants near Bashundhara Gate at Narda around 11:50am. Fire fighters extinguished the blaze.
Meanwhile, fire was set to a pickup at Nawabpur Road at about 7:15 pm. However, locals doused the flame before a firefighting unit reached the spot.
No casualty was reported in the fire incidents.
