Officers investigate flat tires, vehicle on fire.
Some south-side residents got an unpleasant surprise when they tried to leave for work Friday morning. Eight vehicles along 42nd street and 20th avenue had flat tires. Police originally found four vehicles -- some with one flat tire, others with four flats --- but as officers checked the area, they discovered another four affected vehicles. While police were checking the area, they found one vehicle that had been set on fire and the owner was outside extinguishing it. Police are still investigating.
