Pasco deputies seek tips on string of fires set in Moon Lake

MOON LAKE – Pasco deputies are looking for leads on potential arsonists in the wake of several area fires in recent weeks.

Several fires have started consistently from 10 a.m. to noon around Moon Lake, said Pasco County Sheriff's Office spokesman Doug Tobin. They do not have suspects in mind.

The fires have been started in remote areas away from homes, Tobin said, but are moving closer as the suspect or suspects become bolder.

"We want to put the word out that these are being intentionally set before someone gets hurt," he said.

Anyone with information may call (727) 844-7711.
