Arson suspected in Wednesday night fire


A call was made to police and firefighters Wednesday night to report a fire on the 1800 block of South Johnson Street. Police were notified that a witness had seen four juveniles running from the scene. Firefighters arrived and worked to extinguished the flames that engulfed a trailer at the back of the property. The fire chief told police that he believed the fire was arson. Officers discovered the fence line had been cut and was, possibly, how the suspects entered and exited the property. No arrests have been made. Anyone with information is asked to call police at 361-664-0186.
