A Lexington police officer in the right place at the right time put out a car fire early Friday morning.
Police say the officer spotted the burning vehicle near the Creekside South Apartments on Devonport Drive as he was patrolling around 3:15 a.m. He used the fire extinguisher in his car to put out the fire. The officer says there were signs of foul play, including broken windows and a rag stuffed in the gas tank.
Fire investigators will look into the blaze.
