Police search for arsonist using gasoline


BUFFALO N.Y. (WIVB) – Erie County Sheriff Timothy Howard is looking for the public’s help in identifying who may be responsible for setting three fires in the area of Broadway and Two Rod Road in the Town of Alden.

It started early Thursday with a gasoline fire in the middle of the road near Broadway and Two Road Road. That fire happened about 1:20 a.m. About an hour later sheriff’s deputies and the Alden Fire Department responded to a report of two mailboxes on fire on Two Rod Road near Broadway, one of which spread to a nearby utility pole.

Those fires were also set using gasoline, according to the sheriff’s report. Anyone with information regarding these incidents is asked to call the Erie County Sheriff’s Office at 858-2903
