SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - Some City Heights residents woke up early Friday morning to a car and motorcycle on fire in a possible arson incident.

The fires were reported at around 12:30 a.m. in the 4200 block of Thorn Street, according to San Diego Fire-Rescue officials.

One resident who spotted the fires tried to put it out with his garden hose, but he said the flames were "just too much."

Firefighters arrived to douse the fire, and in the damage, they found a bottle of lighter fluid on top of the torched car.

Investigators are trying to determine if the fires were set intentionally.
