Suspected arson incinerates wheelchair-transport vans

A suspected arson fire over the weekend incinerated six vans used to transport wheelchair-bound residents in Trumball.

Lynn Cammarota, co-owner of American Chaircar Services, which owns the vans, said this is the second time in 18 months that a fire has destroyed company vans, each worth about $30,000. ACS has another seven vans that were not touched in the fire.

ACS uses the vans to transport wheelchair-bound clients, primarily to medical offices in several towns.

State police and the state fire marshal are aiding the Trumball Police Department in the fire investigation. Cammarota says she hopes possible clues, such as tire tracks and a glove found at the scene, will lead to an arrest.

ACS is seeking any donations such as wheelchairs to help it get back on its feet.
