Fire Marshall seeks information in Mt. Airy fires

The State Fire Marshal’s Office is seeking the public’s assistance in obtaining information about two suspicious vehicle fires that occurred on the same street in Mount Airy 24 hours apart.

The first call came in to the St. John Parish Fire Department just before 6:30 a.m. on Friday, April 3. On the 100 block of Chestnut Street firefighters located a Mitsubishi Galant in flames in front of a home occupied by an elderly female.

The second call came in to SJPFD on Saturday, April 4, around the same time, in the 200 block of Chestnut. In this case, firefighters located a 1986 Volvo 240 sedan on fire in front of a home occupied by another elderly female.

After an assessment of each scene, including evidence collection, the fires were both determined to have been intentionally set.

The SFM is asking anyone with information about the individual(s) responsible for these fires to contact our Arson Hotline at 1-844-954-1221 or share the information through our online tip form found at lasfm.org.

A cash reward may be available for tips leading to an arrest and conviction in this case.
