Arson Destroys Vehicle on Street

July 23, 1998|NICK GREEN

Arson destroyed a vehicle on an Oxnard street early Wednesday morning, authorities said.

Witnesses to the 2 a.m. fire in the 500 block of Hull Place, near Oxnard Airport, said they saw two men leaving the area about the time the fire began.

The vehicle's owner, who authorities said has requested anonymity, told investigators the fire may be linked to earlier vandalism of his vehicle, as well as an arson case involving a friend's car in Los Angeles.

Officials said they recovered evidence of a flammable substance that helped fuel the fire.
