Smoke Clears, Reveals Hateful Message

Car spraypainted and set on fire

A burning car in Lemon Grove was deliberately set on fire by arsonists, sheriff’s deputies said Friday.

When neighbors and firefighters put out the fire on 2500 Buena Vista Avenue Thursday, they found a large swastika spray painted on the hood of the car. The rear license plate and trunk were also sprayed with black paint.

Detectives found a spray can and a clear bottle filled with what appeared to be an ignitable liquid.

No suspects have been arrested and the investigation is ongoing.
