Car Found On Fire Near Columbia River Was Stolen From Oregon
Umatilla County Deputies will handle the investigation.
FLAMING STOLEN CAR FOUND NEAR PLYMOUTH BY COLUMBIA RIVER
Overnight Sunday into Monday, Benton County Deputies were called to McNary Road near Plymouth, not far from the I-82 bridge into Oregon, for a report of a car on fire.
When they arrived the sedan was fully engulfed in flames. Fortunately, they didn't spread to other vegetation in the area and fire crews from Plymouth put out the blaze.
The car, say Deputies was reported stolen from Oregon, and apparently abandoned and set on fire here in WA, perhaps as a counter-measure.
No one was inside the vehicle, the investigation continues.
