Possible Arsonist Hits Carlsbad Car Dealership

Fire torched at least eight cars at a Carlsbad auto dealership Tuesday night and now police are searching for a possible arsonist. It happened just before 10:00p.m. at the Bob Baker Dealership on Car Country Drive.

When fire crews got there nearly four cars were engulfed in flames, but it spread quickly, hitting several other cars. Crews were able to put the fire out without any damage to the building or injuries. At least eight used cars were destroyed or damaged.

Investigators are looking at surveillance video that shows at least one person was walking away from the scene after the fires began. Anyone who may have witnessed something near the dealership is asked to call police.
