WAYNESBORO, Va. (WHSV) -- The Waynesboro Police Department is investigating a suspicious fire that happened early last Thursday morning in the Shenandoah Heights neighborhood. On April 24 at about 5:20 a.m., both the Waynesboro fire and police departments responded to the 1000 block of Frye Street for a reported vehicle fire.

They found a 1988 Ford Bronco when they arrived, fully engulfed in flames and threatening the home where it was parked.

Officers evacuated the 59-year-old owner and his wife from their home as a precaution. Officers also evacuated neighbors from a nearby residence while firefighters extinguished the fire.

None of the structures were damaged, but the Bronco and another vehicle, a 1966 Ford pick-up truck, which was parked next to the Bronco, were destroyed.

There were no injuries.

Police detectives and the fire marshal suspect foul play in this fire.
