Sound of breaking glass leads to discovery of car fire

Police are probing whether arson may have been the cause of a car fire on Jan. 21 in the 500 block of 20th Street in Niagara Falls.

A witness told city police that he heard glass breaking and looked outside to see a man driving a vehicle at a high rate of speed, with either its rear door or a rear quarter panel burning, according to a police report.

After seeing the vehicle flee the area, the witness discovered that a nearby car was burning and called police. The damaged vehicle belonged to a 24th Street man. No damage estimate was available for the damaged car.
