FBI: No ‘Specific Threat’ Found in Perimeter Breach, Vehicle Fire at Travis AFB

During a press conference at the Sacramento Field Office of the FBI, officials said a terrorism link had not been found in the March 21 attempted security breach at Travis Air Force Base in Fairfield, Calif.

A vehicle entered the base without authorization and a fire occurred in the vehicle. The driver died at the scene. The investigation is in the early stages.

Travis Air Force Base first responders and local emergency officials responded to the incident, which took place at the main gate entrance. Travis Air Force Base’s Explosives Ordinance Disposal Team, the Air Force Office of Special Investigations, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation also responded to the scene. The FBI is currently leading the joint investigation to determine the circumstances that led to the incident.

“We know that the community is concerned but we can assure everyone that we are unaware of any specific threat to Travis Air Force Base and the Fairfield community,” said FBI Sacramento Special Agent in Charge Sean Ragan. “We continue to seek the answer to the question of why this man acted in the manner he did. We appreciate the public’s concern and patience as we continue to follow all investigative leads in order to provide a factual basis for the events that occurred.”

The driver of the vehicle was Hafiz Kazi, 51, of Sausalito.

Within the vehicle, investigators found five propane tanks, a gym bag with personal effects, three phones, three plastic one-gallon gas cans, and several lighters.
