Car Fires Are Insane

car2, originally uploaded by Prince of Petworth.

As we’ve seen in the past, sadly car fires (intentional or not) happen from time to time. The reader who sent me the photos writes:

“Found this waiting for me when I arrived at home this evening in the parking lot behind the Safeway in the 3800 block of Georgia Ave. I have no idea what happened, but whatever it was, it happened either today or yesterday. You’d certainly like to think this was some kind of accident, but you have to think someone was getting rid of a stolen car.”

What do you guys think – was the car stolen? Perhaps I am a bit naive but why do people torch stolen cars, to get rid of any evidence?

More photos after the jump.
