Fire Chief Asking for Help to Prevent Arson in Lawrence

Fire-2000Photo from sxc.huThe Lawrence fire chief is asking residents of apartments in the city to keep their eyes open for suspicious activity following a series of arson-related fires. Around 20 fires in south central Lawrence have been set in recent months, and they appear related. Fire Chief Mark Bradford says all have been set at multi-family dwellings and apartment buildings. He’s asking apartment managers and residents to take steps to help prevent fires.

Bradford says residents should make sure they have escape plans and working smoke alarms. The ATF has increased a reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction. The award had been $5,000, but last week it was increased to $7,500. Any tips can be reported to the Lawrence Police Department or the Lawrence-Douglas County Fire Medical Department.
