Burning a vehicle is always a shitty thing to do. It is especially shitty to be starting any fire this time of year.

IMHO: Pretty much a trimmer done with a stolen vehicle.

Im always surprised at how abandoned cars mysteriously burst into flames. It seems to often happen at night. Gremlins? Elementals?

The delay of traffic on 101. The fire was night before last? Why are they doing an investigation today?

The delay on Hwy 101 is due to a head on vehicle accident.
