Fire Investigators On the Hunt for Highland Arsonists
Investigators with the Shreveport Fire Department need your help bringing a group of arsonists to justice. Officials have been on the hunt since late last month when a group of men were seen trying to set fire to a car and a residence in Shreveport's Highland neighborhood.
The fire-starters were captured on security cameras April 26th pouring a flammable liquid on the house on Columbia street and the vehicle in the driveway, and have been linked to another video allegedly showing the same group buying and filling containers with gasoline at a nearby gas station just minutes earlier. The men then ignited the accelerant causing an intense blaze that damaged both the car and the residence.
According to KTBS, the suspects were spotted driving a "tan Ford Crown Victoria with a dark stripe across the trunk." If you have any information that could help the SFD find these dangerous criminals, please reach out to crimestoppers at (318) 673-7373, or submit your tip anonymously here.
