      Vandalism/arson more like it. Just look at what happened in downtown (riot) and Davidson County (three arsons) last week with all the teens out of school for the summer…..that’s where police should be searching first.

    Odd, another news source said it was “an electrical wiring problem”. I live at this apartment complex, just feet away from the 3 story fireball that occurred and melted 3 cars. The car had been parked and turned off for several hours, as well as the cars around it. How often does a car randomly catch fire? Glad no one is hurt. Gave us all quite a scare last night though.
