Arson starts two Valley structure fires within three hours

Saturday, February 09, 2013

The Fresno Fire Department is investigating two arson fires within just three hours of each other.

The first blaze started just before 5 p.m. Friday at a home on Goldenrod near Ashlan Avenue.

Crews contained the flames in less than 15 minutes, and no one was hurt. But the fire caused $30,000 in damage.

Officials say the second arson fire started around 7:30 p.m. Friday at an apartment on Pleasant near Fedora Avenue.

A witness reported seeing smoke coming from the attic vents. Crews contained the flames to one bedroom, and the damage is estimated at $5,000.

Investigators are now looking for suspects in both cases.
