JSO: Vehicle fires in Northside Jacksonville neighborhood appear to be arson

June 24

The state fire marshal is currently investigating three vehicles that caught fire early Thursday morning in a Northside neighborhood, the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office said.

Sgt. R. Knecht, who responded to the scene, said it appears someone purposely set fire to two vehicles on Campus Hills Circle and one vehicle on Naples Court North. The neighborhood is next to the North Campus of Florida State College at Jacksonville.

The first of the Campus Hills Circle fires started about 1 a.m., and the other two were reported about 4:20 a.m., Knecht said.

Knecht said police do not have a suspect in custody and a description is not yet available.

He also said he does not know whether the vehicles were targeted or randomly selected.
