BOSTON (WHDH) - A search for one or more suspects is underway after two cars in South Boston were destroyed in fires, both apparently caused by flaming trash cans, according to authorities.

One of the vehicle’s owners filmed the scene as his car burned on E Second Street at 3 a.m. on Thursday. Video he shared with 7NEWS showed the vehicle fully engulfed, with flames burning wildly, destroying the car’s contents.

“I thought I was in a dream and like, I could see the red flashes, like the fire flashing through the windows,” said Adam Kavanewsky. “And then eventually I heard a big pop, looked out the window, saw the car was on fire. I honestly didn’t even realize it was mine.”

Kavanewsky’s Audi, complete with his golf clubs in the back, was destroyed. Boston Fire crews were able to put the flames out soon after arriving, as well as another car fire a few blocks away at W First and F street.

According to police, both fires involved trash cans that were lit and moved onto the vehicles during the overnight hours. In the case of E Second Street, the flames grew so powerful, they caused neighboring windows to crack from the heat.

No injuries were reported, though Kavanewsky was left stunned and hoping surveillance video might give more information on those responsible.

“I never feel like I’m worried that something’s going to go wrong and, obviously, last night was the worst-case scenario,” he said.

He also said he did not have insurance on the car, making the incident even more costly.

A GoFundMe fundraiser has since been set up for Adam. As of 11 p.m. on Thursday, $6,500 had been raised.
