Possible Arson? A Family Is Upset After Their Car Goes Up In Flames Overnight
Ocala, Florida -- An Ocala family wants to know who destroyed their car early Monday morning.
An Ocala police officer was patrolling the 700 block of southwest 5th street when he noticed a vehicle in flames.
The family was sleep inside when they heard knocking at their door just after 2:30 in the morning.
