An unspecified short in a wrecked car sparked a blaze that destroyed the vehicle and another car in the Toledo police impound lot last week, Fire Investigator Michael Smith said.
The car where the fire began was recently in an accident and had front-end damage. The blaze spread through the car s fire wall and into the vehicle in the lot at 198 Dura Ave. in North Toledo, Mr. Smith said.
A nearby car also was damaged during the 12:15 a.m. incident. No foul play is suspected, the investigator said.
