Albany firefighters are looking into the overnight torching of a stolen car.

Albany Fire Chief James Carswell said "Oh definitely. We are still in the middle of an investigation, but everything points to it. It was a stolen, and they set it on fire to destroy any evidence."

The stolen car and arson case remain under investigation.
