LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - A car fire at a Lufkin apartment complex Thursday night appears to have been set intentionally, according to a fire department spokesman.
Assistant Fire Marshal Steve McCool said firefighters responded to the fire at 9:08 p.m. at The Village Apartments on Lazy Oaks Street. When they arrived, a neighbor had already put it out with a fire extinguisher.
"There was a broken window that was taped up, and it looked like someone had broken the tape and dropped something in the car," McCool said.
The car is a 2007 four-door Chevy.
