Parked train car catches fire in east Lawrence

January 9, 2002


A parked train car in east Lawrence caught fire Wednesday morning and investigators say it looks suspicious.

The blaze, which broke out shortly before 6 a.m. on railway tracks near Eighth and Delaware streets, completely destroyed the interior of the caboose on the train.

Two smaller fires started in the area around the same time, leading investigators to suspect the fires were set on purpose.
