OAK HILL -

A truck that caught fire in Fayette County on Tuesday has Oak Hill Police searching for suspects.

The truck was parked at the Fayette Plateau Vo-tech Center on 300 Oyler Avenue in Fayette County.  Officials with the center said someone was trying to steal the truck by messing around with the wires.  That is when the truck apparently went up in flames.

The truck belonged to a student of the Vo-Tech Center.  The student was working on the truck in class and had left it parked at the school overnight.
