Someone set fire to about 20 cars in the fenced lot of a Bustleton industrial company early this morning.

Firefighters raced to Rhoads Industries on Sandmeyer Road near Red Lion just before 4 a.m. to douse the flames that ravaged the empty cars. Rhoads Industries specializes in metal fabrication, shipbuilding and other industrial needs, according to its website.

The fire marshal's office is investigating.
