      Toronto Police are asking residents in a midtown neighbourhood for help tracking down a suspected firebug.

      Residents on Burnham Road, in the St. Clair Ave. and Mount Pleasant Rd. area, were woken up by popping sounds and sirens on Friday morning.

      Around 3 a.m., fire crews responded to at least three vehicles on fire at three separate addresses on Burnham Road.

      Flames were also crawling up a home on neighbouring Evergreen Gardens.

      The fire was put out before the home became fully engulfed and no injuries were reported.

      Toronto Police confirm 10 vehicles -- many of them expensive luxury models -- were set on fire.

      Some reports say at least a dozen vehicles were torched.

      It seems some of the damaged cars had been left unlocked.

      Police are asking residents of the area to look through any surveillance footage they may have and to report any damage to authorities.

      No arrests have been made and there is no word on a suspect.
