Barnstable Police Say Car Fires Were Result Of Drunk Driver

The Barnstable Police Department alleges a drunk driver caused a fire in Hyannis this past weekend. 

The BPD reports a truck fire spread to two other motor vehicles that were parked at a condo complex on Bearse's Way overnight Saturday. 

Investigators learned the driver, Julio Ramos-Rivera of Hyannis, collided with a guardrail on Route 6, sustained a flat tire, and traveled for about three miles. 

It is believed that the heat and sparks generated by Ramos-Rivera driving on a rim caused the fire. 

No injuries were reported.
