BRADENTON -- A car caught on fire after the owner had it towed when she had an argument with her ex-boyfriends's family over who actually owned the car, according to the Bradenton Police Department.

At 5:12 p.m. Friday, the car in question caught fire in the 200 block of 15th Avenue West in Bradenton, according to a police report.

The fire has been ruled suspicious and is still under investigation, he said.

The vehicle was towed from the incident location and detectives and crime-scene investigators were called out to the scene.
