(SEYMOUR) - Seymour Police are still looking for Robert Fleetwood, who may have suffered burns when his garage caught fire late Saturday night.

Firefighters were at the fire for more than three hours. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
Seymour Police Department Sgt. Ryan Huddleston said three people in a van gave a man a ride shortly after the fire started. That man is believed to be Fleetwood. The group told police they drove the man to the country and dropped him off. The occupants of the van told police the person they gave the ride to was "burnt pretty bad."

Fleetwood, or whoever was burned, has not sought treatment at any local hospital and police are concerned.

In October 2010, firefighters were called to Fleetwood's house at 821 E. 10th Street. On two separate occasions, firefighters were called in for fires. Huddleston said Fleetwood also had a fire back in 2005.

The house is uninhabitable, but a neighbor told police that Fleetwood was living in the garage. The neighbor said Fleetwood came to her house and asked her to call the fire department and then left.
