Rental car damaged by shoe fire

MANHATTAN (KSNT) – It’s a strange story out of Manhattan: a car damaged by flaming shoes. It happened in the 500 block of Osage Street.

A report for criminal damage to property and arson was filed Monday morning around 8:20 AM. The incident reportedly happened shortly before that. A 38-year-old man told police that his rental vehicle was damaged after someone lit a pair of shoes nearby. It isn’t clear why the kicks were torched to begin with. However, the SUV belonging to Enterprise Leasing was damaged in the incident.

The total damage is estimated at $1,600, and RCPD officers continue to investigate.
