Springfield firefighters responded to a car on fire in the city's Indian Orchard neighborhood on Friday night.
Dennis Leger, aide to Springfield fire commissioner Joseph Conant, told CBS 3 that firefighters found a 2008 Chevrolet Impala with the interior on fire shortly before 11 p.m.
The vehicle was abandoned in the middle of the road and a gasoline can was found a few yards away.
“This car was reported as stolen and the Springfield Arson and Bomb Squad has determined this to be a set arson fire,” Leger said.
If you have any information, please contact the Arson and Bomb Squad at 413-787-6370 or ‘Text-A-Tip' to the Springfield Police Department.
