An Arizona family is desperate for answers after their car was torched in their driveway. 

Laura Castaneda says she ran outside and grabbed her hose after seeing the flames. While on the way back to her car, the hose broke.

In a panic, Castaneda ran to her neighbor's yard and grabbed their hose. The flames, less than 6-feet from her house, were right outside of her daughter’s bedroom window.

“I was just praying, ‘I go, God, just help me through this — get me through this; keep everyone safe,’” Castaneda explained.

When the fire department finally arrived, Castaneda says she broke down. 

“That’s kind of when I broke down,” she said. “I thought, ‘This is our only vehicle. My husband just got a new job. I’ve got seven kids — what am I gonna do?’

Castaneda says they’re desperate to get a new car. 

Now police are looking for the person her set her car on fire. Anyone with information is urged to reach out to law enforcement.
