Parking spot war may have sparked car blaze

A San Francisco man whose car was set ablaze Friday says the incident was the result of a parking dispute, police said.

Firefighters had to douse the car fire in the 300 block of Crescent Street around 6:22 p.m. Cops contacted the owner, who said he’s been in a parking dispute with his neighbors and believes they’re responsible.

The fire appears to have been set with a flammable liquid, police said, citing a Fire Department investigation.

An investigation is ongoing, police said.
