Fire destroys patrol car

Fire destroyed a Garfield County sheriff’s office cruiser as deputies chased a wanted man. Deputies stopped Kevin Watson on suspicion of speeding Tuesday evening. While being questioned, Watson drove into a field of tall grass, where he crashed his van and escaped on foot, police said. Undersheriff Jerry Niles said the patrol car caught fire when the exhaust system ignited the grass. Watson is wanted in Kansas on four larceny counts.
