Arson Investigation

Updated: Tuesday, April 2 2013, 08:56 AM EDT

Franklin police need your help to catch an arsonist. Officers say four fires within a two week period last month were set on purpose. Two were at abandoned houses, one was in a dumpster, and another was in a vehicle. They were all near each other.


Police say there was no power going into the homes and they were likely set with existing materials. They also say it's suspicious that the car door was found open.


Firefighters are worried about homeless people living in the abandoned houses, and embers floating to adjacent buildings. Police are not aware of any witnesses.  


If you have any information call the Franklin Police Department at 828-524-2864 or Crimestoppers at 828-349-2600.
