Reward offered in arson case

Three vehicles set on fire last Friday

A $10,000 reward is being offered in three vehicle fires suspected to be arson.

South King Fire & Rescue responded to three vehicle fires early last Friday morning between 1:54 a.m. and 2:45 a.m. in the Twin Lakes neighborhood.

All three fires were investigated by SKFR and Federal Way Police investigators, and were confirmed to be arson, according to a media release from SKFR.

The first fire was reported in the 2100 block of South 338th Street, and the other two fires occurred within about a quarter mile of that location, in the 2300 block of Southwest 342 Street and the 2800 block of 340th Place. There was also a fourth incident reported with similar circumstances that did not result in a fire. All three vehicles were parked on or near the street in areas of low visibility.

Investigators have posted Arson Alarm Foundation notifications at these scenes that advise of the $10,000 reward fund available for persons who bring information forward that results in the prosecution of the individual(s) responsible for these intentionally set fires.

Neighbors are advised to be vigilant, report any suspicious activities and park their cars in well-lit or secured areas, as well as eliminate combustible materials around buildings and vehicles.

Anyone with information about the fires should call Federal Way Police at 253-835-2121 or South King Fire & Rescue at 253-946-7348.
