Scary series of fires
The police suspect arson. There have been almost a dozen fires in the area in recent weeks, Dario Panzeri told Blick early on Sunday. There are still no suspects or arrests, but “we assume arson”. What you know: the perpetrators usually strike at the weekend.
Panzeri speaks of a “series of fires with a fire devil”. The uncanny fire series does not want to break off. Police are asking for the public’s help in catching the perpetrator(s). Anyone who has made suspicious observations about the latest fires should contact the Solothurn cantonal police on 032 627 70 00. (kes)
