Suspicious Trash and Yard Waste Fires

The City of Warwick is experiencing a rash of trash and yard waste fires.

In the early morning hours of Monday May11, 2015, Warwick Police responded to four locations in the Wildes Corner and Buttonwoods sections of the city for the reports of trash and/or yard waste on fire. The trash and yard waste was at residences and placed at curbside for collection when they were set on fire.

Shortly after 11:00 PM on that same day, a second series of three trash/yard waste fires occurred in the Buttonwoods section of the city.

Though all the fires were quickly extinguished, in one case a parked vehicle sustained minor smoke and fire damage.

All of the fires appear to be related.

A dark colored sedan with tinted windows was reported at two of the fires and may be involved. The Warwick Police are seeking the help of citizens in locating this vehicle and any suspects of the fire setting.

Anyone with information relating to these events is asked to call the Warwick Police Department at (401) 468-4200.

Anonymous information can be left at the Warwick Police Department’s recorded TIPS line: (401) 732-8477.
