FRESNO, Calif. (AP) - Fresno police say the patrol car driven by Chief Jerry Dyer was set on fire over the weekend.

The Fresno Bee reports officers at the downtown headquarters put the fire out within minutes on Sunday afternoon. The fire department also responded.

Fire spokesman Kris Townsend says it is not immediately known what caused the fire.

The undercarriage of the car was damaged. It was processed for evidence and towed for observation.

Dyer says he does not think the vehicle was targeted because he drives it.

The newspaper says Fresno patrol cars have fallen victim to vandals over the years.

The tires on a number of cars were slashed in 2012 and others were spray-painted.

Detectives are reviewing video surveillance from the parking lot.
