The Daytona Beach Police Department (DBPD) is actively investigating after a 55-year-old Lake City man died following a vehicle fire which happened in the front parking lot of DBPD’s Valor Boulevard headquarters.

Officers were first made aware of the vehicle fire at 2:19 a.m. today (January 12, 2022) when that vehicle – a gray 2003 Ford van – pulled into the parking lot near the front lobby entrance. Flames were seen coming from the van by the officers on scene.

The adult male driving the van then ran out of the vehicle covered in flames. He collapsed in the parking lot around 5 feet away from the van and passed away on scene shortly afterward.

The vehicle fire was extinguished by firefighters before it spread any further. 

It’s not clear at this point what caused the fire, but the initial investigation indicates it was not due to a mechanical issue inside the van.

The state fire marshal’s office is assisting DBPD in this investigation.

The victim’s identity is not being released at this time since his next of kin has yet to be notified.
