Topeka Capital Journal – February 28, 2017


A car was destroyed by fire early Tuesday on the city’s east side, and authorities were investigating whether the burned-out vehicle may have been stolen.

The fire was called in around 7 a.m. in the 2600 block of S.E. Monroe, a block with fields on both its west and east sides.

First-arriving crews reported the vehicle was completely involved in flames as it sat facing north in the middle of the block.

Topeka firefighters were able to get the fire out quickly.

Police at the scene said the car was a Kia Soul.

No one was in the immediate area when fire crews arrived, authorities said.
