Pre-teens suspected in arson fires at mobile homes in Garden City

December 11, 2012


— Garden City law enforcement and fire officials are working to determine if five fires in the last month are connected.

The Garden City Telegram reports the fires have all been reported since Nov. 9. No one has been injured in any of the fires.

Two of the fires were at vacant mobile homes. Garden City police Sgt. Michael Reagle says an 8- and 11-year-old are considered suspects in those cases but no arrests have been made.

The other three fires involved fires being set to trees, grass and fences. Reagle says it’s unclear if those fires are related to the other two incidents. Police have no leads or suspects in those fires.
