More news on car fires: the Post reports that DC authorities are asking for help from the public, requesting people to call the arson tip line at 202.67 ARSON (202-673-2776) or the toll-free Crime Solvers confidential hotline at 1-800-673-2777.
In addition, I received photos from readers of a Jeep burned last week in the 1500 block of Monroe. See below. This one has DC plates, which is contrary to what a fire investigator said before, that all the burned vehicles have MD or VA plates. Then again, there may be more than one person or groups burning cars. Crazy stuff. There are bigger versions of 4 photos on my Flickr site.
If you have any photos, heard about fires, or have anything else, you can email me at newcolumbiaheights(at)gmail(dot)com.
