Police are calling a Labor Day fire arson after it nearly wiped out the golf cart fleet at a northwest suburban golf course.

Forty five golf carts were destroyed Monday when the fire spread through Chick Evans Golf Course in Morton Grove.

Authorities say a "tiki torch" was used to ignite the flames.

Carts are worth about $3,000 each. The total is around $135,000.

Officials say about two dozen carts were untouched by the flames.
