On July 29, 2012 at 12:34 AM Scott Fire Department responding to a call of a truck fully engulfed in flames on Roper Drive.
Investigators say Kristen Fruge, 21, and David Harris, 39, were allegedly trying to siphon gas from the truck--when one of them pulled out a lighter. This ignited the fuel which ultimately caught the vehicle on fire. Arson Investigation Unit is investigating the fire which appears to be accidental but both Kristen and David were arrested and released on misdemeanor summons for the theft of gasoline by deputies.
Luckily no one was injured, but two people are under arrest.
Two nearby mobile homes did have some minor damage.
