Weekend car fire still under investigation


Authorities say the cause of a weekend car fire is still under investigation.

Early Sunday morning Wausau Police responded to Randlin Homes on Sixth Street for a report of a vehicle fire. When they got there, they say a blue Ford Focus was completely engulfed in flames.

But authorities say they still don't know how it happened and say the cause of the fire is still undetermined.

"We're just going to go continue to do some follow up and hopefully some leads will come in regarding the vehicle fire," Detective Nathan Pauls said.

Randline Homes leaders say they are grateful the flames did not reach the building or destroy any of the merchandise. But, they say this incident has forced them to take some extra precautions.

"The positive side is we had people stop today and already give us donations for cameras on the outside front of the store so that's the positive spin on it, maybe some good will come out of this," Randlin Homes General Manager Rich Daniells said.

Authorities say the investigation will continue throughout the week. Check back with Newsline 9 for further details.
