Weapons found at early morning car fire in Des Moines


DES MOINES, Iowa – Des Moines Police are investigating a car fire that also included weapons this morning. 

WHO Channel 13 reports that just after 5 o'clock this morning, a driver called in because a car was engulfed in flames at the end of a dead-end road on East Spring Street, which is off of SE 45th Street.  

Des Moines firefighters say the car was fully engulfed. Because of the location, they had to truck water in to fight the fire. They also used foam to combat the fuel in the vehicle.

Police say the car has no plates and they're trying to find out whether or not the car was stolen. 

Investigators aren't saying what kind of weapons were found.
