'Suspicious' car fires under investigation in Easton
Authorities in Easton believe several car fires early Saturday morning may have been intentionally set.
Three vehicle fires occurred around 3:40 a.m. on Lehigh Street, between the 1000 and 1200 blocks, police said.
Two of the cars were on fire when officers responded to the scene. The third fire was extinguished before major damage was done, police said. Officers recovered evidence from the three scenes.
Police said they were called back to the 1200 block of Lehigh Street around 10 a.m. Saturday for a report of a vehicle damaged by fire and found the inside had damage that had been extinguished for hours.
Officers were then called to the 1400 block of Washington Street on Saturday afternoon for another report of a vehicle damaged by fire and found a similar situation.
Police said they have a person of interest in the case who was seen in the 1200 block of Lehigh Street at the time of one of the fires.
That person is described as a white man standing between 5 feet, 10 inches and 6 feet tall, wearing light-colored clothing. Police said he may have fled east on Lehigh Street, possibly in an unknown black vehicle.
Anyone with information about the fires is asked to contact Easton police at 610-250-6639 or 610-250-6635.
