Fire Marshal Probes Arson At Fernley Maintenance Shop
FERNLEY, Nev. (AP) — The state fire marshal is asking for the public's help in the search for a suspect in a recent arson fire at Fernley's city maintenance garage.
The fire marshal says security cameras captured images of a man entering the Fernley Shop and Garage at the Out of Town Park March 12 at about 1:30 a.m.
He climbed a fence and entered the property before smoke started coming out of the facility.
The surveillance tape shows smoke appear to lessen before the man re-enters the property and heavier smoke becomes visible. He left the area between 2:35 and 2:40 a.m.
Investigators say the man may have a tattoo on the right side of his neck and a star tattoo on the front of his right waistline.
Anyone with information should call the Nevada Arson Hotline at 1-844-NV ARSON (682-7766).
