Q. On saturday the 21st there was a car on fire out on backloop on wren st i think, what happen and why was it on fire
Dear Juneau Resident,
There were two cars fires over the weekend and neither were found to be suspicious. One car was being welded on and sparks caused a fire. The other car was doing the garage sale circuit and the operator was aware it was over-heating and was there when it caught on fire. Given the recent arsons, CCFR and JPD are paying close attention to anything that might be an arson and sending a fire marshal or the JPD detective that has been specifically assigned to arsons. Thankfully there was nothing sinister about the two car fires last weekend.
