Vehicle fire ruled arson

State investigators have ruled that a Madison County vehicle fire was intentionally set. The white 2017 Hyundai Genesis G80 was stolen from Athens before being found in the parking lot of a closed business in Hull. “At the request of the Madison County Sheriff’s Office, our investigators examined the vehicle that had been completely destroyed by the fire,” said Insurance and Safety Fire Commissioner John F. King. “They quickly discovered that the fire had been deliberately set. If you have any information about this incident, I ask that you call my Fire Investigations Unit at 1-800-282-5804. Callers can choose to provide their contact information or remain anonymous.” State fire investigators are assisting the Madison County Sheriff’s Office with this case.
