'Suspicious' truck fire investigated

By The Hays Daily News

Hays Police and Fire departments continue to investigate a "suspicious" fire that destroyed a 1986 GMC Jimmy.

Hays Police Chief Don Scheibler said dispatchers were first notified at 7:25 p.m. Monday of a fire in the 400 block of Halladay.

When responders first arrived they found the vehicle fully engulfed in flames.

"The fire is suspicious in nature," Scheibler said, "believed to be arson."

Authorities also discovered the license tag on the vehicle might have been taken in a 2011 burglary.
