RIVERSIDE: Car Completely Destroyed By Fire

Late Tuesday night July 10, 2018 shortly after 10:30pm the City of Riverside Fire Department responded to multiple reports of a fire in the area of W. La Cadena Drive and Strong Street. The first arriving engine company located a vehicle fully engulfed by fire in the 1400 block of W. La Cadena Drive just north of Strong Street. It appears the vehicle was facing northbound in the southbound lane of La Cadena and may have been intentionally set ablaze. A gas can was found next to the vehicle and the vehicle appeared to have been stripped and dumped at the location. Firefighters were able to quickly knock down the fire preventing it from spreading to any nearby vegetation.
