The San Pierre Fire Department is on the hunt for a person intentionally setting fires alongside the road in the San Pierre area for the past four nights.
San Pierre Fire Chief Mike Korous said that beginning Friday night and each night through Tuesday morning, an hour later each time, an unknown person(s) has started a fire on 900 West south of 700 South, 900 West north of 500 South, and on 800 West and 500 South. No homes or other buildings have been threatened by the fires, but a grass and brush fire is started every night on the side of the roads mentioned.
Neighboring North Judson fire personnel have also been called out to several brush fires as the fire season starts to heat up.
If you observe suspicious activity outside your country home or see the person(s) responsible for starting these fires, gather as much information as possible and call the Starke County Sheriff’s Department at (574) 772-3771.
