UPDATE: Burning car was stolen from city

An SUV apparently stolen out of the City of Albany was found on fire last night in the Glenmont area.

Police and the Selkirk Fire Department responded to the blaze at about 10:30 p.m. after it was reported by passersby in the area of 380 River Road, according to Bethlehem police, and the fire was quickly extinguished.

No one was in or around the vehicle, which was a 1995 Chevrolet Blazer. Police found the registered owner to be a resident of the City of Albany and the person was apparently unaware the vehicle was gone when Albany police showed up at the owner's house.

Bethlehem police are treating the fire as an arson and an investigation is continuing and are working along with the Albany Police Department, which will be investigating the alleged theft of the SUV.
