Fire Marshal Seeks Kansas Arsonist

KSAL StaffMarch 19, 2014

The Kansas Fire Marshal’s office is asking for help finding out who is responsible for nearly two dozen arsons in northwest Kansas.

State Fire Marshal Doug Jorgensen says it’s vital to apprehend the person starting the fires before someone is seriously injured or there is a major properly loss.

Twenty fires in Ellis County since March 6 have been ruled incendiary or crimes of arson. Many of them have been grass fires that also have burned trees, sheds and an old granary in the Hays area.

A news release from Jorgensen’s office says the fires pose obvious safety concerns for residents, first responders and surrounding properties.
