Suspect wanted in suspicious fire in Bullitt County

Zoneton Fire responded to three fires less than six hours apart on the night of September 12. Police are still working to determine if they are all connected.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Hillview police say new surveillance video helped them identify a suspect in at least one of the recent suspicious fires in Bullitt County.

Detective Scott Barrow said a man was seen on surveillance video at the Baymont Inn on September 12, 20 minutes after the first fire nearby.

The man sets off the fire alarm and leaves the scene.

The Zoneton Fire Department responded to three fires in six hours that night, but police are still working to determine if the fires are related.

Detective Barrow asks people living near the fire to check their cameras for any useful information.

“It could be a vehicle driving on the road. It could be someone walking down the road, anything could be the missing link to really put it all together, to identify the person(s) involved and to potentially tie the fires together,” he said. .

Police are also looking for the owner of a black SUV seen driving past the Hampton Inn that night.

They think the driver might have seen something that could help investigators.

If you recognize the man in the video, or have any other information that may help police in this case, please call them at (502) 955-6808.
