Atlanta Radio: Foul Play Considered In WSTR Van Fire

A WSTR Star 94.1 FM promotions van went up in flames Monday night in the parking lot of the radio station in Vinings. The front of the van is now basically a hunk of gray-tinged, melted metal.

“Someone REALLY hates me and Jenn,” wrote Jeff Dauler, morning co-host for the station, on his Instagram page after  snapping photos of the now useless van.

Rodney Ho at, why the fire started is not clear but the fire department said it might have been electrical and related to the engine, said Mike Fowler, general manager for Star. The van hadn’t been driven all day Monday. In fact, it had been 27 hours since anybody at the station had used it. That alone makes him suspicious it might have been foul play.

The radio building has no cameras set on the parking lot so there was no way to know if there were any arson-happy suspects wandering around.

When the fire was first noticed at 6;15 p.m. Monday by a security guard, two employees managed to get a nearby second promo van out of harm’s way. By the time the fire department showed up, this fired-up van was a lost cause.
