FLINT, Mich. (AP) - Jugs of water being distributed to Flint residents amid the city’s crisis with lead-tainted water have been left scorched by fire.

Sandra Jones tells The Flint Journal (https://bit.ly/1NzN9kg ) that she was moving pallets of water for distribution on Wednesday at Greater Holy Temple Church of God in Christ when she smelled burning cardboard and noticed flames.

She says fire was burning 5-gallon jugs in three separate places. She says she’s suspicious because the fires were at the same time.

Flint police are investigating and seeking tips from the public.

The newspaper says the fire was the second in less than a month’s time, with the previous one taking place on May 3.
