'Excuse Me, Sir — Your Car's On Fire.' Man's Burning Vehicle Catches Cops' Eye, Leads to Drug, Theft Busts.

“Oh, that fire!”

No, there's no way to play it off cool when the San Francisco Police Department notices that your car is burning — and it tips them off that maybe, just maybe, you're up to no good.

That's how it went late last week in Bernal Heights when cops chatted it up with a parolee after he left his vehicle. It was after the police concluded their conversation that a bystander helpfully pointed out to the cops that the car was on fire. This, apparently, had escaped initial notice.
