According to Assistant Fire Marshal Michael Bartlett, two key witnesses saw a person in the area at the time of ignition. They also reported seeing the same person flee the scene. “A fuel can was found between the two vehicles, leading us to believe that it was used to start the fire,” said Bartlett.

Although the Fire Marshal’s Office already has a subject of interest, the department welcomes any public assistance. “The more help we have, the quicker the investigation will come to a close,” Bartlett said.
