Investigators looking into suspicious fires in Hunterdon County

Thee unoccupied buildings torched.

LAMBERTVILLE, N.J. - The Hunterdon County Prosecutor’s office is investigating a string of suspicious fires in the Lambertville area.

The first happened back on November 13th.

Investigators say it appears someone started the fire that ruined a warehouse at ABC Supply on Routes 179.

Employees told 69 News the fire burned the building to the ground and destroyed equipment and vehicles that were inside.

Police said the second fire was set a few weeks later on Buttonwood Street in Lambertville where a garage burned to the ground.

The heat and flames also destroyed a new car parked nearby and a gazebo.

Investigators say the third fire was set on N. Franklin Street on Wednesday night.

"I heard on the scanner so I ran to the front, looked out and it was blazing already," said Barbara Parsons who lives nearby.

Authorities say all of the buildings were unoccupied structures typically used as warehouses and garages.

The Hunterdon County Prosecutors Office is asking anyone with information to call at 908-788-1129.
