Crime Stoppers: Brush Fires

As dry as it's been in our area this year, brush fires have been especially dangerous.

That's why it's hard to believe someone has been setting them.

In the Oct. 17 "Crime of the Week," you can help police catch whoever is igniting the fires that are scorching north Warren County.

Over the past six weeks, several brush fires have been reported in the Richardsville-Anna communities of Warren County.

The Richardsville Volunteer Fire Dept. has responded to eleven roadside fires, which they believe were intentionally set.

All the fires were started between 11:30 p.m. and 3:30 a.m.

On two nights, more than one brush fire was ignited.

If you have any information on any of these intentionally set brush fires, please call "Crime Stoppers" at 781-CLUE
or click here to get to their website.

You could get up to $1,000 for your anonymous tip.

Remember, Crime Stoppers calls are not recorded and they do not use caller i.d.

They just want your information, not your name.

The fire danger is bad enough with our dry conditions due to the drought without people starting fires on purpose.

But you can help police stop them with just a phone call or the click of a mouse. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
