A six-week police investigation into fires aboard three D.C. ambulances in August — two on the same day — found no evidence that they were intentionally set, according to the results of an investigation that is to be made public Wednesday.
The findings by police largely support the conclusions reached by fire investigators within days of the incidents — that the fires were most likely accidents caused by a variety of engine problems, such as fuel leaks or electrical malfunctions. The precise causes were not determined.
Deputy Mayor for Public Safety Paul A. Quander Jr. ordered the police review to ensure that “nothing untoward” had occurred in what he described as an unusual number of fires in a a short time.
