Eight Cars of Fraternity Members Burned

Police suspect a flammable liquid was used to ignite vehicles in parking lot behind fraternity.


Eight cars at the Sigma Chi fraternity house at Indiana University of Pennsylvania were set afire last week, the Penn reports. The fire was set shortly after 4 a.m. Wednesday, and police believe a flammable liquid was poured on the cars before they were ignited. "The flames were so high, I thought the house was on fire," said one of the fraternity brothers.

The cars were eventually towed around 4 p.m., but police are still investigating who set the fire and why.
