The Racine Fire Department is looking for information from the public about an intentionally set car fire that happened Wednesday night.
Firefighters were called to a report of a 2005 Chevrolet Blazer that started on fire at 5:31 p.m. in an alley at 1925 Phillips Avenue, according to a press release.
The owner of the car — Mark Terwall — had parked it next to a garage in the alley. Firefighters were able to put out the fire quickly. An investigation revealed that the cause and origin of the fire was an incendiary fire placed in the passenger compartment.
“The garage did not sustain any structural damage. No injuries were reported. This is an intentionally set fire,” the press release reads.
The estimated loss is set at $3,500.
Anyone with information about the cause of the fire and who started it is asked to contact Racine Fire Department at (262) 635-7915.
