2 suspicious truck fires in Juniata ruled arson

Saturday, October 19, 2013

Police say two suspicious truck fires in the city's Juniata section early Saturday morning have been ruled an arson.

The incidents took place around the corner from one another and minutes apart.

Officers on routine patrol were nearby when a Chevrolet pickup truck exploded around 1:30 a.m. on the 900 block of Bristol Street.

Firefighters were called to extinguish the flames when they were told another vehicle was on fire.

They discovered a Ford truck with the interior on fire on I Street and crews quickly doused the flames.

No one was injured in either vehicle.

The Fire Marshal and police have determined the incident was done by an arsonist.
