YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) — Police and fire officials are investigating after someone set a van on fire on Monday in the driveway of a South Side home.

Firefighters were called about 2:30 p.m. to a home in the 500 block of West Glenaven Avenue where they found a van on fire in the driveway with a flaming gas can next to it.

Firefighters were able to put out the fire before it spread to the home.

A fire department spokesman said a man set the van on fire and also threw a brick through the window of the home.

The spokesman said the fire may be connected to a dialogue over a house across the street that was condemned on Friday. 

Police searched the house across the street for a suspect, but the house was empty.
