Boone County investigators believe arson is the cause of two separate fires early Thursday morning which destroyed two vehicles.

Firemen responded to the calls which came in five-minutes apart shortly before 2:00am on Hewett Creek off Route 17.  One fire destroyed a handicap accessible Boone County School bus.  The other fire destroyed a pickup truck.  Deputies say the windows of a third vehicle were also broken.

Authorities are asking anyone with information to call the Boone County 911 304-369-9913 or the state Arson Hotline at 1-800-233-FIRE.
