RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Richmond Fire are investigating a suspicious car fire early Wednesday morning.

Firefighters say the call came in around 3:30 a.m. for a house fire on Highland View and Woodcliff Avenue. The fire was then downgraded to just a vehicle fire.

Fire crews tell 8News a witness claimed they saw someone dressed in all black throwing a liquid on the car. Firefighters were not able to confirm this information, but did say that there was flammable liquid on the car — making it harder for them to put the fire out.

The fire did not spread to the house and no one was hurt.
