SULLIVAN COUNTY, Ind, (WTHI) – The investigation continues after a string of house fires in Sullivan County.

With no leads at this point, the Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office is reaching out for the communities help:

Three arsons in three months, with a few similarities. All three fires were in a few miles distance from one another. The properties, all owned by Bear Run Coal Mine in Sullivan County.

“Two of them is here on 159, approximately 5 miles apart, and the other one is on 800 which is probably 4 miles south west of here,” said David Heaton, the Assistant Chief of the Union Fire Protection Territory.

The most recent house fire that took place on Saturday. Heaton says, it took crews hours to tame the blaze that engulfed the abandoned home.

“We can tell they’ve been arson, because usually the fires will start in the section of a house and spread through. These seem to burn in the whole house, at the same time pretty well,” said Heaton.

The other two fires happened on July 17th and August 16th. All three were abandoned homes, with no utilities turned on. That’s why Heaton says, he is confident that the fires were intentional.

Heaton added, “Not anything has been stripped out of them prior to the burning of them, so we figure their intent is just to burn the residence.”

With not many neighbors in sight, Heaton is struggling for information. “All they saw was the shape of a pick-up truck with loud exhaust about the time they noticed the fire.”

He hopes by getting the word out, this will stop the string of fires, before someone gets hurt.

“They might get a hold of a house that they think it’s an abandoned mine house, and there might be a family living there,” said Heaton.

Officials also need for your help in another investigation.

This past weekend, items were stolen out of 15 cars in the Dugger area. Heaton says, all of the cars were unlocked, and personal items were taken.

If you have any information at all on either investigation, you’re asked to call the Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office at (812) 268-4044.  Or you can call Crime Stoppers at 238-STOP.
