Fairfax Police suspect arson may be the cause of several car fires early Thursday morning in a gated community.
Just before 3 a.m. Thursday, the Fairfax County Fire Department responded to the 2200 block of George C. Marshall Drive in Falls Church for the report of a vehicle fire.
Investigators are now investigating the fire as a possible arson.
Fire Investigators told NBC Washington that they believe the fire started with a white BMW and then spread to two other vehicles, including a Nissan truck and a Volvo.
The owner of the Nissan and Volvo told NBC Washington he parked his vehicles at about 7 p.m. At about 3 a.m., he was awaken by building security and told his vehicles were on fire.
Several other nearby cars suffered some minor damage as well.
The fire happened in the parking lot of a gated condominium community that serves three large buildings and hundreds of residents.
The investigation into a possible suspect and motive is continuing.
