At approximately 3:00am last night (Saturday July 22nd) Shelburne Police and Shelburne and District Fire Department responded to 9-1-1 calls for a vehicle on fire.
Upon arrival the vehicle, which was parked on the side of the road, was found engulfed in flames.
An investigation was initiated which revealed that several residences in the immediate area were victims of various types of mischief, and a theft. The vehicle fire, which appears to be the result of foul play, was the most significant incident.
An ATV that fled the area is believed to have been involved.
