The State Fire Marshal has ruled 4 fires discovered Friday morning in Summersville are arson. A fifth blaze in Mt. Nebo is suspicious.
The first one started around 2 a.m.
Police say a security camera caught a man stealing a gas can from a business about an hour before the blazes were reported from a location between the four Summersville blazes and the one in Mt. Nebo. They are trying to identify that person of interest.
If you have information about any of these fires call the arson hotline at 1-800-233-FIRE or the Nicholas County Sheriff’s Department or the Summersville Police Department at 304-872-7814. This individual is wanted for questioning in connection with the recent break-ins and arsons in Summersville and the surrounding areas. The video can be downloaded by clicking on the following link:
