NYPD patrol car set on fire in front of Bronx subway station

An NYPD patrol car was set on fire outside a Bronx train station on Thursday night, police said.

Officers from the 45th station parked their marked car on the street near the entrance to the Pelham Bay Park 6 train, then proceeded to the elevated station to inspect it, authorities said.

When they got back to the car at around 10:20 p.m., it was on fire, cops said.

“On their return, their patrol car was engulfed in flames”, NYPD News tweeted, with a photo of the charred vehicle. “Officers quickly extinguished the fire and no injuries were reported.”

No policeman was inside the car at the time and no one was injured.

No one had been arrested on Friday afternoon and police had no description of suspects.
