WESTWOOD, OH (FOX19) - Police are investigating a series of car fires in Westwood.

It's happening at apartment complex in the 2500 block of Westwood Northern Boulevard, and so far, four cars have been set on fire.

Arson investigators with the Cincinnati Fire Department are looking for clues. Investigators believe the fires may be part of some sort of parking dispute.

"It's been an ongoing problem," said a witness. "It kind of escalated, like two weeks ago, a week and a half ago on a Sunday. Vehicles were towed out of the parking lot."

An owner of one of the apartment buildings said people in the neighborhood have unfairly accused his tenants of starting the fires. He said the parking space problem wasn't the fault of his renters.
