A burn­ing car found in woods off Capes Drive early Satur­day morn­ing was ap­par­ently in­ten­tion­ally ig­nited, and fire of­fi­cials are ask­ing that any­one with in­for­ma­tion on the blaze come for­ward.

Around 3:37 a.m., wit­nesses called 911 and re­ported the fire. Ac­cord­ing to re­ports, one wit­ness was com­ing home from a friend’s house when he saw the fire in the woods. He went in­side his home and alerted his fa­ther and the two called for help.

The next morn­ing, au­thor­i­ties were in­formed that the car — a 2007 red Aura RX — had been re­ported stolen out of Gwin­nett County, ac­cord­ing to Fire Mar­shall Chief David Carter.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion is asked to con­tact the ar­son tip line at (800) 282-5804. Tips can by given anony­mously.
