Kent, Washington | A trio of FIU Investigators with the Puget Sound Regional Fire Authority along with working with Law Enforcement officials were able to piece together a successful case leading to an arsonist. The PSRFA states these were intentionally set in dumpsters and other locations but responding firefighters were able to quickly put these fires out before spreading to nearby structures. As with any fire
An adult male has been arrested and charged on three Arson-2 charges after the FIU’s investigation led them through a string of arson fires that occurred in the downtown Kent area. They are currently looking through additional video footage and evidence to see if they are able to tie him to other unsolved fires that have occurred in the same area.
The Kent communities can now rest easy knowing their Fire Department has nabbed one arsonist off the streets. Remember, if you See Something, Say Something and always call 911 right away.
