An arsonist may have been burned when he set fire to a flatbed truck in Chambersburg.
A witness who reported the fire Wednesday night in the 500 block of Poplar Avenue saw a man wearing dark clothing and hoodie running from the burning truck, which was parked in a borough lot, police said.
The witness reported the man’s clothes were on fire as he fled through Henninger Field and a nearby playground.
Police said they searched the area and did not find the man, but they did find arson-related items near the truck.
