LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

Officers with the Lufkin Police department are still investigating an intentionally set car fire that occurred Friday evening at a residence in the 500 block of Hodge Street.

No arrests have been made at this time, but the suspect is the mother of the home owner's child.

According to Steve McCool, Lufkin's city fire marshal, the owner of the residence on Hodge Street told authorities that just before the fire, he saw his baby's mother on his property and was concerned that she was going to put something in his car's gas tank.

The man and the woman had a confrontation at the residence. McCool said the woman had criminal trespass warning against her for coming on the man's property. He said the man and the woman have a back and forth relationship, and they both have criminal trespass warnings filed against each other.

According to McCool, the car, an '88 Oldsmobile, had been at the residence for several days.  He said the investigation of the car fire revealed that it was intentionally set.

The car fire was located by officers with the Lufkin Police Department. The fire was extinguished, and the scene was cleared by 6:19 p.m.
