PUEBLO, Colo. (KKTV) - A vehicle fire on Pueblo's east side may have been started by a passing car.

The victim told police he heard a vehicle drive by his house, followed by "popping" sounds. He looked out his window and saw his SUV on fire.

Police say the SUV was fully engulfed by the time firefighters and officers got to the home. The vehicle was parked extremely close to a house, but crews got the fire extinguished before it could spread.

The incident was reported in the 600 block of East 9th Street around 12:20 a.m. Thursday. There is currently no suspect information.
