Arson investigators are looking into the burning of two vans at a local window cleaning company.
The co-owner of Sunshine Window Cleaning Geoff Gillikin said the fires were set early Monday morning.
Gillikin said each vehicle had about $3,000 worth of equipment inside, and all of it was destroyed.
He said the business has a lot of work to get done and, unfortunately, only has one vehicle to work out of for now.
"It's such a senseless act for just some people just trying to make ends meet and just work, but we'll get through it," said Gillikin.
He told us he has an idea on who may have done this.
"There is kind of a community of people living under this bridge behind us, and have been told to leave, and they keep coming back. I'm not sure if they're responsible or not," Gillikin added.
Now, those living in the quiet community say they'll be extra cautious in the days ahead.
"I guess things can go down anywhere," said Spenser Hallmark. "I’ve never felt super unsafe here."
