Yakima Fire Department Helping West Valley in Investigation
Yakima, WA - The West Valley Fire Department is asking Yakima Fire for for help investigating several suspicious fires. The two departments had a meeting Sunday with YSO to discuss a possible connection between as many as nine weekend fires.
They're being tight lipped about it right now, but three fires in West Valley have officially been arson. They're continuing to investigate five fires in the Chestnut Avenue area. Neither department would talk on camera about the ongoing investigation...but Ron Melcher of Yakima fire did release this statement:
"The only ones that we're ready to rule arson are the three fires out in West Valley...but right now all of these fires are suspicious."
If you have any information on any of these fires, you're encouraged to call Yakima Fire.
