The DeRidder Police has announced that they and DeRidder Fire Departments are investigating fires that have occurred in the past week that involved three homes and two vehicles. Each fire occurred hours and days apart and all were on the east side of DeRidder.

According to DeRidder Police, although some of the fires could have a reasonable explanation and could be coincidental, they are still being investigated until arson is not a consideration.

The Louisiana State Fire Marshal’s Office is investigating one of the residences and DeRidder Police and Fire are investigating the others.

Anyone with information regarding these fires is asked to please call Crimestoppers at 337-462-8918 and you can remain anonymous. Crimestoppers offers a cash reward for information leading to the arrest and/or conviction of suspects in crimes.
