Three vans burned Monday night in a parking lot just off South Broadway in Lexington.

The vans were parked next to each other in a nearly-empty parking lot at 340 Legion Drive. Firefighters were called to the scene just after 8:30 p.m.

Mjr. Andrew Areaux of the Lexington Fire Department said two of the vans were totally destroyed and the third suffered "pretty extensive" damage. He said an investigation into the cause of the fire was just beginning.

Two of the vans bore the name Tipton Staffing. The third was burned too badly for any lettering to be visible. The Patty Tipton Co. has Lexington offices at 340 Legion Dr., according to the company's Web site.
