Officials Search For Fire Witnesses

Fire investigators are searching for witnesses to a suspicious fire that damaged a minivan early Tuesday.

The incident occurred on Swindell Road over Interstate 4, said Lakeland Fire Department spokeswoman Cheryl Wahl.

About 2 a.m., Nancy Saint Louis pulled the 1993 Plymouth Voyager over on the side of the road because of mechanical problems, Wahl said. Between 6 and 7 a.m., flames engulfed the van and caused about $4,000 in damage. No one was injured.

Investigators suspect arson and asked anyone with information to call them at 834-8201.
