MPD INVESTIGATING TWO ARSON FIRES

3/3/14 - The Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office and the Maywood Police Department are looking for information relative to two early morning fires that have been determined to be intentionally set (arson).

On Sunday, March, 2, 2014 at approximately 5:30 a.m., the Maywood Police Department received a 911 call reporting an explosion and fire in a detached garage of an apartment complex located at 5 Hammell Place, Maywood. The Maywood Police and Fire Departments responded to the scene and began extinguishing the fire. The explosion heard by the 9-1-1 caller was simply the result of the fire, not the cause of it. It was determined that an unknown person(s) intentionally lit the fire, which then caused several containers kept in the garage to explode.

While fighting the fire on Hammell Place, they received a fire alarm at 8 Windsor Court, Maywood. The Maywood Fire Department responded and found a fire in the garage underneath the apartment building of 8 Windsor Court. The fire consumed one vehicle and caused damage to others. The fire was extinguished and no injuries were reported. It should be noted that the apartment building above the garage was occupied with numerous tenants at the time of the fire and the possibility of injury and/or death existed.

The Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office, Arson Squad conducted an investigation and both fires were determined to be intentionally set, arson fires.

Prosecutor Molinelli is asking for the public’s assistance with this case. Anyone with information regarding these fires is encouraged to contact the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office, Anonymous TIPS line at 201-226-5532 or the Maywood Police Department at 201-845-8800.
