"This fire was extremely dangerous, luckily no one was injured but the garage and its contents have been badly damaged.
"There has been a spate of wheelie bin fires in the area as well, with two bins being set alight on the Rodwell Trail on the same night. We are not ruling out that these fires may be linked.
"Should anyone have information and or has seen something suspicious, please to come forward and talk to us in confidence."
Police said access to the garage is via a footpath which links Alma Road and Holland Road.
Anyone with information should call 101, quoting incident number 03:457.
