TULSA, Okla. - A couple has no way to get around after someone lit both of their cars on fire, Tulsa fire investigators suspect.

The daughters of the elderly couple said they have driven the cars for almost three decades. They used them to run errands and go to church.

Sisters Pamela Oxford and Alice Bowling said it just doesn't make sense, as they look at the charred remains of the cars their parents have driven for 30 years.

"It was just a disbelief. It’s really hard to imagine this happened," Bowling said.

One car is burnt and destroyed inside and the second is also damage.

Pam and Alice said their parent are in their 90's and have been married 70 years. They love their family and going to church and still get around great.

"They go to bed Saturday night ready to go to church Sunday morning and this is what they wake up to," Oxford said.

Pam said her parents woke up to firefighters putting out the fires, making sure it didn't spread to their home.

"All the dash is burned up and melted," said Pam.

Tulsa fire investigators say they are investigating the fires as arson but haven't made an arrest.

"It's devastating at their age," Pam said.

The couple didn't want to go on camera because they are afraid the people will come back, but they do hope somebody can help find out whoever did this. Now, they have to start the process of getting a new vehicle.

"The purpose in finding that person is that it doesn't happen again," said Alice.

The family said they are offering a reward to anyone with information. If you know anything, call arson investigators at (918) 596-2776. You can remain anonymous.
