Platte City Fires

Platte City Police are working with regional authorities after they say 9 vehicles have been burned early this morning, 3 are completely torched, and the body of a man has been found in one burned out truck.

The vehicle arson string is centered around Wilkerson Street, that's in the southwest corner of Platte City not too far from the I-29 and I-435 Intersection. Police investigators say the victim did not own the truck he was found in. No word yet on a motive or the status of suspects. The Kansas City Bomb and Arson Squad is also helping with that investigation.
