Suspicious Fires

Posted on 31st August 2016 at 06:18

Kelso Police are working with Cowlitz 2 Fire and Rescue on the investigation into a number of suspicious fires that have taken place in the past week or so. A Sunday evening fire in an abandoned house on South River Road was the third structure fire in South Kelso on Sunday, and the fifth structure fire in Kelso that occurred over the weekend. Captain Darr Kirk tells the Daily News that Sunday night’s fire is “suspicious,” as the house was abandoned, and no one was around when the fire was reported. Arson has not been excluded as a cause, and police are actively seeking leads. If you have information about any of these fires, call Kelso Police at 423-1270.
