    I heard that two cars, one in Seaside and one in Seagrove were set on fire last night. Anybody else hear this? I truly hope that this rumor is not true.

    SEASIDE — Investigators are looking into suspected arson of two cars late Wednesday.
    The first car, a silver 2004 Cadillac Escalade, was set on fire at 146 Forrest St. about 11:30 p.m., according to an incident report from the Walton County Sheriff’s Office.
    When South Walton firefighters arrived, the vehicle was engulfed in flames and the fire was threatening nearby structures.
    Shortly after, a second car fire was reported at 420 W. Grove Ave. just blocks away. A witness said he smelled something burning and called to report a 2006 Volvo SUV that was on fire, according to the report.
    Both fires were suspected to be arson, the report said.
    The state Fire Marshal’s Office is investigating.
    No one was injured in the fires and no structures were damaged

    Does anybody know the address? My wife and I have friends who have a small house on Walton Rose Lane, and we're very concerned. Thanks.

    Saw the one SUV on Grove as we headed to 'our' house. hope nothing else happens. So glad no one was hurt.
    Also, strange site at Grayton. A girl's bathing suit bottom, cowboy shoes, and maybe purse. Didn't look into it. Hope nothing happened. Ellen
