A burning car in front of the apartments at 5210 10th St. Monday morning was suspicious in nature, Great Bend Fire Chief Mike Napolitano said. The state fire marshal is expected to investigate as soon as weather permits.
The fire was reported at 6:41 a.m. Monday. In addition to destroying the car, it caused $2,000 to the apartment.
As the fire truck was turning into the alley to get to the fire, it hit something in the alley. Napolitano said the accident caused minor damage to the truck, which was back in service later in the morning.
