The car was parked on the sidewalk outside the 77th Precinct. It is unclear if it is a police vehicle, or if the incident is related to Eric Garner protests.

The vehicle belongs to a police officer and is the officer’s private car, NYPD told PIX11 News Thursday morning.

It was not immediately clear if the fire was related to protests sparked by a grand jury’s decision not to indict a police officer in the in-custody death of Eric Garner.

An investigation is ongoing.
