Officials investigating two overnight fires in Chandler

CHANDLER, AZ - Chandler fire officials are investigating after someone’s car and apartment both caught fire overnight.

Firefighters said both fires happened at an apartment complex near the Loop 101 and Elliot Road.

Tempe firefighters were originally called out after someone called 911 to report a car fire inside the apartment complex. Tempe firefighters got the car fire out and towed the car away to investigate.

Shortly after the car fire, the owner of the car’s apartment also caught fire. This time Chandler firefighters got the fire out within minutes.

Fire investigators are now trying to figure out what caused both fires and if they are connected.

No one was injured in either fire but there is significant damage the car and the apartment.
