NAPLES, Fla. -- Collier County deputies along with the state fire marshal are investigating a fire that burned two state probation vehicles.

It happened at one Tuesday morning at the probation office at 2500 Airport-Pulling Road in Naples.
Deputies say no one was injured, but one vehicle was fully engulfed, and another was damaged.

UPDATE: The fire is considered suspicious, but no suspect has yet been named.

Some Naples residents said Tuesday that they believe the suspect is likely someone who is familiar with the probation system.

"Somebody's after revenge for something," said Gerald Tilbury. "It's very suspicious, to say the least."

"To me, that's pretty direct that it was a retaliation of sorts," agreed Katheryn Gray.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Collier County Sheriff's Office at 239-252-9300.
