Oglesby garage fires suspicious

Posted by wlpo on April 6, 2014

    Oglesby Fire chief Ron Popurella has asked a state fire marshall to examine a Piety Hill garage after two suspicious fires in four hours Saturday morning.

     The News Tribune reports Oglesby firemen were called about midnight Friday to a burning garage on East 450 road just south of Route 351. The garage sits just east of an unoccupied house. The fire was extinguished but firemen returned at 4:15am to find the structure engulfed and about to collapse.

     This time the fire destroyed a 1960’s Pontiac Bonneville inside and substantially damaged the east half of the house.
