A super high-end sports car was vandalized and destroyed in Aberdeen on Friday night after someone allegedly broke in and ignited a road flare within the vehicle.
Just before 8:30 p.m. on Friday, emergency personnel were dispatched to the 1000 block of Hardees Drive in Aberdeen for the report of a vehicle fire in a 2015 McLaren 650S Spider passenger car.
The fire was discovered by the car’s owner in the interior passenger’s compartment. The preliminary cause was determined to be incendiary, due to an unknown person breaking into the vehicle and igniting the interior with a road flare.
Ten firefighters from the Aberdeen Volunteer Fire Company responded and had the single-alarm blaze under control within 20 minutes. There were no injuries reported.
The Office of the State Fire Marshal estimated the fire caused $300,000 in damage.
