Fairfield police say a juvenile set a pickup truck on fire last week, and the blaze spread to a second truck.

Now Whitney Rogers is trying to help raise money for her neighbor, Charles Crawford Jr., through a GoFundMe page after he lost a 2004 Ford F350 and a 2003 Ford F250.

“Our neighbor, JR, had just gotten home from work with his crew (on June 22). When he left to get them food, someone caught his work truck on fire,” according to the post.

Rogers went on to write that the trucks were for his work.
