State Fire Marshal Peter J. Ostroskey, Lunenburg Fire Chief Patrick A. Sullivan, and Lunenburg Police Chief James P. Marino are asking for the public’s help solving two arson fires that occurred in the early morning hours of July 3, 2017.
The first fire was a stolen 2005 Ford Econoline van found burning on Beal Street at about 1:15 a.m. After the fire was extinguished the Lunenburg Police Department went to van’s owner’s home on Massachusetts Avenue and discovered a shed fire. Both fires have been determined to be arson, or intentionally-set.
“Anyone with information about these two arson fires is asked to confidentially call the Arson Hotline at 1-800-682-9229,” said State Fire Marshal Ostroskey. The Arson Hotline is part of the Arson Watch Reward program supported by the property and casualty insurance underwriting companies of Massachusetts. The program provides rewards of up to $5,000 for information that helps to solve the crime of arson.
Chief Sullivan said, “Arson is not a victimless crime. It affects the entire community and we need the community to fight back as they did in 2002.” The Arson Watch Reward Program led to information that helped to solve a series of arson fires at the closed Whalom Park in Lunenburg in 2002. Chief Marino said, “Information from the community is key to solving these types of crimes and we ask anyone who saw or heard anything in the area around the time the fires started to come forward confidentially.”
