MILBURN, OK - Firefighters said the fire that destroyed a Johnston County family's car may have been set on purpose.
Marilyn Whittington said her grandson's car was parked outside his Milburn home when it went up in flames around 3:15 a.m. Monday morning.
Whittington said her grandson was staying with her the night of the fire.
She said a Johnston County Sheriff's Deputy told her it could be arson.
Whittington said she found a suspicious can that may have been used as an accelerant in the front yard.
The Johnston County Sheriff's Office wouldn't comment on the case.
Firefighters said the cause is still under investigation.
