Investigations Continue Into Arson Fires

Last updated on Monday, September 7, 2009

(BARTLETTSVILLE, IN) - The investigation continues in search of the person responsible of several arson house fires in Bartlettsville, located near Heltonville.

Over the past few months, Pleasant Run volunteer fire fighters have been called more than four times to the same general area after unknown arsons set fire to two abandoned houses.

All of the fires happened on different days, typically late at night but, during the most recent fire the arson or arsons, was brazen enough to finish off the final building standing just barley after dark.

Pleasant Run Volunteer Fire Officials met with the State Fire Marshall to investigate the scene of the arsons this past Friday.

Anyone with any information is encouraged to call Lawrence County Sheriff's Department at 275-3316 or the Indiana State Fire Marshal at (800) 382-4628.
