Kennewick police are investigating an obvious suspicious fire that destroyed the inside of a newer SUV Wednesday morning.

A witness called 911 to report seeing flames erupting from the inside of the vehicle, which was parked in the 100 block of South Rainier Street.

Upon arrival Kennewick police and fire crews extinguished the flames, but the interior is pretty much ruined, the vehicle totaled. Fortunately nobody was inside but it's obviously being treated a suspicious, largely because of the size and speed which which the fire 'exploded.'

Anyone with any information is asked to call (509)-628-0333. All tips can be anonymous.
