Police arrested a second 18-year-old suspect for arson, following the arrest of a 26-year-old for the same case a day ago, authorities said on Wednesday.

According to police, the fire broke out in the car around 1am on Tuesday, while it was parked outside of the 25-year-old owner’s home.

The car was destroyed in the fire.

During their investigation, police determined that the fire was arson, as they found a flammable substance had been used to start the blaze.

Police then arrested the first suspect on Tuesday, after testimony emerged against him.

The second suspect, 18, was also arrested on Tuesday night at 8pm, after testimony was received against him.
