WOODBINE, Ga. – A Kingsland woman is facing charges of arson and filing a fraudulent insurance claim.
Kimberly M. Pollock, 37, is accused of using an accelerant and intentionally setting her Honda Accord on fire in May 2013, according to a release from the Camden County Sheriff's Office.
Camden County Fire Rescue responded to the car fire involving a Honda Accord May 27 in the parking lot of the Ingleside Apartment complex in Kingsland. Firefighters claim a bottle of Sea Foam fuel fell out of the Honda when they opened the door to fight the fire. Sea Foam fuel is a motor treatment that is used in gas and diesel engines to clean injectors, carburetor jets, stabilize fuel, and is considered highly flammable, according to the CCSO.
When firefighters gained access to the engine compartment to disconnect the battery they found that the positive terminal was already disconnected. Investigators determined the fire could not have been of electrical causes because there was no power to the car at the time of the blaze.
Dep. Greg Jackson of Camden County Sheriff's Office, who is also a firefighter and arson investigator, advised burn patterns inside the vehicle looked suspicious and believed the fire was intentionally set.
After further investigation Pollock was arrested and charged February 12.
