WEST VALLEY CITY, Utah (ABC 4 News) - The fire at an apartment complex in West Valley City is now being called arson and potentially a case of mistaken identity.
The damage is unbelievable. The only thing left are the charred remains of used to be nine cars and covered parking.
Sandra Young lives in the complex, she told ABC4 News, "It's not right."
Young's car is one of the nine destroyed. She lives alone and without that car, she is stranded and dependent on her neighbors.
The fact this fire is not an accident, makes the situation even worse for Young and her neighbors.
Young said, "It's close to Christmas, it just impacts people when somebody started the fire."
West Valley City Fire Department believe Tuesday morning's fire was not an accident.
Bob Fitzgerald from the fire department said, "The car had been sitting there a couple days, so it wasn't electrical or something like that."
Arson dogs picked up accelerants near the car where the fire started. Investigators are waiting for test results on those areas, but they are confident.
this wasn't an accident and maybe a case of mistaken identity.
Investigators say the car where the fire was started, isn't usually parked in that spot.
The estimate for total damage is near $200,000. If you have any information, call West Valley Police.
