Truck burns on 8th Avenue

A pickup truck was destroyed by fire early Monday morning.

About 12:15 a.m., a person reported to Tiffin Police Department that someone threw something at a truck, and it was on fire, a police report states.

Chief Kevin Veletean of Tiffin Fire Rescue Division said the owner of the S-10 pickup had parked it on the street and went to a friend’s house at 211 8th Ave. The owner said he walked outside to make a phone call and saw the interior of his truck on fire, Veletean said.

The interior passenger compartment of the truck was on fire when the crew arrived, and the vehicle was destroyed, he said.

The cause was under investigation Monday.

Anyone with information about the incident should call Tiffin Fire Rescue Division at (419) 448-5444.
