The Federal Bureau of Investigation and Mexican authorities are investigating who started a fire outside the U.S. consulate in Tijuana that destroyed four cars, a U.S. official announced on Friday January 2nd.
The official said that another vehicle was partially damaged. There were no reported injuries. Local media reported the fire took place early Friday morning.
The fire was controlled by the Tijuana Fire Department.
Investigations are still on going to determine if it was a act of terrorism or just an isolated incident.
The U.S. consulate in Tijuana, located across the border from San Diego, is one of the busiest in Mexico.
A U.S. consulate worker in the border city of Juarez, in the Mexican State of Chihuahua, was killed by drug gang gunmen in 2010. Juarez is right on the border next to the city of El Paso, Texas.
