Arson Suspected In Vehicle Fires In Murfreesboro Driveway

Posted: Updated:

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. – Two vehicles were set on fire in a Murfreesboro driveway Wednesday night.

Around 9:15 p.m., Murfreesboro firefighters found the 1991 Buick Roadmaster Estate and a 1997 Acura TL engulfed in flames in the driveway of a home on Windemere Drive. They were able to extinguish the flames before the home was in danger.

A fuel can was found between the two vehicles, leading the Fire Marshal's office to believe the fires were intentionally set.

Two witnesses also told investigators that they saw a person in the area when the fires began, and saw that same person flee the scene.

The Fire Marshal's Office said they have a person of interest, but did not release a name.

The estimate of damage to the vehicle was not released.

Anyone with information was asked to contact Crime Stoppers at (615)893-STOP (7867) or the Fire Marshal's Office at (615)849-2605.
