Longview fire officials have identified several suspects in many of the arson cases this year because of help from the community, and Fire Marshal Johnny Zackary is encouraging people to continue to provide information about the cases.
"We've been able to make good progress," Zackary said.
Officials have identified suspects in several arson cases, with Zackary noting that some suspects already have been jailed on other charges. The department also is waiting on some grand jury indictments, Zackary said.
Zackary credited the many tips the fire department has received from the public in helping to solve the cases. He said he wants residents to continue to bring information forward, no matter how small.
"The information from the public is helpful," he said.
