‘Person of interest’ sought in I-90 fires
Investigators are looking for a man they think may be connected to a series of fires Friday near Interstate 90.
The man is described as white, in his late 40s, “small in stature” with blond or sandy-colored hair. He was driving an older model red/orange station wagon with wood paneling on the sides, according to the Spokane Fire Department.
Investigators consider him a “person of interest” in at least four fires that burned Friday about 3:50 p.m. near Interstate 90 in the Finch Arboretum area.
The fires backed up the westbound lanes and threatened homes.
Anyone with information is asked to call the fire department’s special investigation unit at (509) 625-7052.
