VSP investigates vehicle fires reported in Washington Co., Va.

The Virginia State Police is investigating a series of vehicle fires in the Glade Springs community of Washington County, Va.

According to a VSP news release, VSP’s Bureau of Criminal Investigation’s Lebanon Field Office is investigating five separate arsons, which damaged 12 vehicles.

On June 4, state police responded to a call of a vehicle fire at an auto parts/salvage business in the 30,500 block of Lee Highway and Route 11 around 5:15 a.m.

A vehicle parked with two others in front of the business was set on fire and the two other vehicles soon caught on fire.

All three vehicles were destroyed.

According to the release, VSP said a short time after that another call came in about two vehicles destroyed in a fire in the 31,400 block of Blue Springs Road.

VSP said the two vehicles were parked next to each other in a field and an investigation revealed that one of the cars was set on fire the same way as the vehicle in the auto parts store.

On June 8 around 4:10 a.m., state police got another call about a vehicle fire at the same auto parts/salvage business on Lee Highway.

A second call then came in about a vehicle fire at an auto business in the 30,300 block of Hillman Highway. Five vehicles were destroyed in that fire.

According to VSP, a third call came in that morning about an abandoned vehicle being set on fire along Loves Mill Road.

VSP said all three arsons appear to be related to the June 4th fires.

Anyone who may have seen any suspicious activity or a black vehicle at any of the locations is asked to call VSP at 276-228-3131 or by dialing #77 on a cellphone.
