Yelling kids tip Niagara Falls neighbor off to car fire

A Linwood Avenue resident called police early Saturday after hearing shouts and looking outside to see a car afire in the street.

Police responded to the 1800 block of Linwood Avenue just before 1:30 a.m. to find a red Buick engulfed in flames. A neighbor told of hearing kids in the neighborhood yelling, before looking out to see the fire. Fire investigators ruled out arson, however, saying that the vehicle, which belongs to a Fairfield Avenue man, appeared to have overheated prior to the fire igniting.

No damage estimate was available.
