East Bay car fire not linked to other arsons

December 14, 2009 3:38:38 PM PST
Firefighters and police responded to what was initially thought to be the latest in a string of East Bay car arsons.

A vehicle burned on 41st Street in Richmond around 3:30 Monday morning. But arson investigators will not be called out to the scene because the fire doesn't appear to fit the pattern of nearly two dozen other recent suspicious car fires that have happened since Halloween.
