A resident of 38 Concord St. told police that his/her 2000 Toyota Corolla was on fire Tuesday morning after calling the fire department to come put it out.

Later police located the suspected vehicle at a Tilton residence and it was damaged with fresh burn marks.

A 26-year-old man whose clothing showed signs of recent fire exposure is believed to be the culprit, after police gathered surveillance video showing the man filling up a container with gasoline from a local gas station.
