Stolen Car Torched

Posted on 30th September 2015 at 08:59

Police in Kalama and La Center are checking into a stolen car incident that ended with the car being torched near Kress Lake. Crews from Cowlitz Fire District 5 in Kalama were called to a spot right across the road from the lake right before 4 pm yesterday, when smoke and flames were seen coming from the parked vehicle. The fast-moving fire started spreading into the tall grass next to the car, and the fire shattered at least one window. It took about 15 minutes to get the fire knocked down; when they checked the car, authorities learned that the car had been reported as stolen in La Center. The car is a total loss; no injuries were reported, as the investigation continues.
