Big Spring Fire Marshal Carl Condray is asking for the public's assistance in catching an arsonist he believes is responsible for setting two fires at a home in the 1700 block of Benton.
The first fire occurred late Thursday and resulted in minor damage to the outside of the house, a recently vacated rental property. Then, in the early morning hours of Monday, someone gained forced entry into the house and started a fire which caused moderate damage to the dwelling's interior.
Condray said there is no doubt the fires were deliberately set.
