Authorities Investigating Abington Church Car Fires

Posted: Updated:

Montgomery County investigators want to know who set several cars on fire near an Abington Twp. Church.

Neighbors noticed the flames around 11:35 Sunday night behind the New Life Presbyterian Church on Easton Road. Fire crews arrived, finding two cars on fire.  That fire quickly spread to two other cars. The vehicles are part of the church's program that helps repair them for people in need.

People living nearby spoke to Fox 29's Shawnette Wilson Monday night. They say they're shocked, and thankful, the fire didn't spread to their homes. Lauren and Charles Centola were outside, when they saw a fireball. They quickly called 911.

The Abington Twp Fire Marshal is investigating this as a suspicious fire. Anyone with information is asked to call police at 267-536-1100, selection #4. Tips can also be left at their website: www.abingtonpd.org.  Tipsters can remain anonymous.
