South LA Auto Body Shop Fire Being Investigated As Arson

 Thursday, May 11, 2017


A fire that burned three cars at an auto body shop in South Los Angeles early Tuesday is being investigated as arson because of an apparent threat painted on the business, authorities said. Los Angeles firefighters responded to the fire at around 2:30 a.m. in the 3500 block of South Crenshaw Boulevard, near a building that houses a number of auto-related businesses, including Richard’s Auto Repair. The fire destroyed three cars and damaged two others, said Capt. Erik Scott of the Los Angeles Police Department. Some 20 others parked in the same area were spared. "I will kill your family" was painted on the bay door of one business.
