Police investigating destruction of Mercedes Benz by fire in Valsayn

Fire officers are trying to determine if a Mercedes Benz was deliberately set on fire in Valsayn last night.

From initial information, the victim told police that he secured his vehicle on the roadway outside of his home in East Grove, at about 11:30 and went inside.

He heard a loud explosion at approximately 11:50 and upon investigating, observed that his car was on fire.

The fire services were contacted and FSO Guerra and a party attached to the San Juan Fire Station responded and extinguished the flames.

The vehicle was completely destroyed.

Persons in the area were interviewed by the St Joseph police, as part of efforts to determine whether the blaze was the work of arsonists.

Fire officers are expected to return today to try to determine what caused the fire.

More on this as it becomes available.
