Meridian Fire Officials investigate arson

Meridian Fire Officials are trying to figure who is torching homes.

Over the weekend alone there were four arsons on 11th, 15th and 20th Avenues. All of the homes were abandoned.

Investigators say the accused arsonist is moving faster than the flames.

“With about 30 minutes or so the first one was right at 11 PM, the second one was just before midnight and then the third one was just about 1, 1:15 I believe,” said Jason Collier, deputy fire chief.

If you have information, please call the Mississippi Crime Stoppers hotline at (855)-485-8477.
