Kepler Philip, who owns the car that sparked the fire, said he got home and went to sleep. He said he didn’t realize what was happening until

“I parked like 11 p.m. The around 1:30 a.m. the people who live right here said the smelled smoke coming from the car on the right side, from there the car started burning,” said Philip.

He added that he has no idea why someone would want to torch his car.
