Thursday, June 15, 2006

A car fire in Cape Girardeau Wednesday morning may have been intentionally set. When officers arrived at 519 N. Middle St. around 2:30 a.m., a blue Pontiac was on fire, police spokesman Jason Selzer said. According to witnesses, the vehicle's owner and a neighbor had been involved in an ongoing dispute, Selzer said. No arrests had been made, but investigators were looking into the suspicious origin of the blaze. "Obviously, cars don't just burst into flames," Selzer said.
