Authorities are investigating an early-morning fire that destroyed one vehicle and damaged two others Thursday.

Fire Chief Jim McSwain said investigators are interviewing people who may have information about the 2:52 a.m. fire Thursday in the parking lot of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity, 1301 West Campus Rd.

The fire department's report indicates a 1990 Jeep Wrangler, valued at $9,000, was destroyed. A total of $1,600 in damage was reported to a 1994 Toyota Tercel and a 1990 Mazda 626 that were parked near the Jeep.

The Jeep will be examined in an attempt to determine the fire's cause, the chief said.

Lawrence police are assisting in the investigation.
