Arson Believed Involved in Raytown Car Fires

Raytown Police and Fire officials were called to two different vehicle fires early last Wednesday morning (05-11-2011). At about 3:30 in the morning emergency responders were called to the 6500 block of Hadley, to investigate a report of a vehicle on fire. When they got there they discovered a pickup truck with a fire in the bed and some kind of liquid dripping out of that bed. The fire was extinguished quickly. About an hour later that same morning, at 4:35 A.M., responders were called to the 5700 block of Lane, where another vehicle was reported on fire. When Police Officers arrived they found the owner of the pickup truck extinguishing the fire in the bed of that truck with a garden hose. The owner reported that he was awakened from his sleep by a glow in his driveway. When he looked outside he discovered that his truck was on fire. The fire was extinguished by the home owner. Fire investigators have ruled the two fires suspicious. Police and fire investigators are both working on the cases. No injuries were reported in either case.

If anyone has any information about this or any other crime they are being asked to call the TIPS hotline at 474-TIPS, (474-8477).
