St. Joseph Police still are looking into the case of two SUVs that were totally burned while they sat side-by-side on a convenience store parking lot Sunday night.

All that was left of a red Chevy S-10 and a Ford Expedition was metal after they were apparently set on fire in the Imperial Gas Station’s parking lot at Seventh and Olive streets.

Fire inspectors said there was a partially melted gas can sitting in front of the burning trucks.

The call came in at 9:53 p.m. Sunday. Police said at least one of the trucks was stolen.
