Lorain pickup fire thought to be arson

LORAIN — A car fire outside 3155 McKinley St., about 11:30 p.m. Friday is believed to have been caused by arson.

Car owner David Huhn said he was home when he heard the driver’s side door of his Ford F-250 pickup slam shut, according to a police report. When he went outside, Huhn said flames were coming from the driver’s side seat.

Huhn said he had left the pickup unlocked, but it was locked when he came out. He said he suspects whomever set the fire locked the door. Huhn’s wife said she suspects a neighbor started the fire.
