A stolen pickup truck is found engulfed in flames at a Salina park.
Police Captain Paul Forrester tells KSAL News that an officer on patrol drove into Lakewood Park on E. Iron around 12:30am Friday and discovered a truck burning in the east parking lot.
The truck was so badly damaged, officers used the rims to identify the vehicle as a GMC, and the licence plate to find the owners.
Scott and Dawn Christensen told investigators the keys to the truck were still hanging on a hook in their kitchen. The truck was stolen from their home in the 200 block of Des Moines sometime between 11pm Thursday and 12:30am Friday.
The 2013 GMC Sierra was valued at $16,000. Authorities say the intense fire melted the asphalt causing $2,000 damage to the parking lot.
There are no suspects in the case.
