FARGO - Police have arrested one person in connection with a suspicious car fire that spread to a van and damaged a mobile home early today, Sgt. Jeff Skuza said.

Dispatchers received a call at 1:35 a.m. today from a man who said he heard that two men were going to blow up a blue Chevy Cavalier in front of a trailer in the 300 block of San Juan Drive, in the Buena Vista trailer court, according to the dispatch log.

Firefighters were called to a car fire at 338 San Juan Drive about 10 minutes later. The flames had spread to a nearby van, and the heat melted siding on one side of a mobile home, Fargo Fire Department Capt. Mike Hendrickson said.

The preliminary damage estimate was $15,000, he said.

Police arrested Aaron Murphy Woods, 22, of Fargo, on suspicion of endangering by fire or explosion, a felony, as well as on an outstanding city warrant for a loud party.
