DRACUT, Mass. —
Dracut police are investigating after a two police cruisers were set on fire and destroyed.
Investigators said it happened Wednesday night right behind the police station.
Police said officers were responding to multiple emergency calls when a shift supervisor received a call about a fire in the back parking lot.
Officers located one marked cruiser that was fully engulfed in flames. The fire was quickly extinguished by the Dracut Fire Department. The cruiser was totaled, and a marked cruiser parked next to it had sustained such significant heat damage that it was also totaled.
"We are extremely thankful that no one was injured as a result of this incident, and I want to ensure the public that the damaged cruisers will not effect our emergency response to this town," Dracut Police Chief Peter Bartlett said.
A woman, who is a person of interest, was found by officers in the vestibule of the station. She was taken to the hospital for evaluation.
No one was injured, and no charges have been filed at this time.
