GFD continues to look into fires

Posted: Updated:

Guam - The Guam Fire Department has managed to classify several fires that ignited recently in Hagatna and Piti, but that doesn't necessarily mean they know what or who may have started them.  GFD Spokesperson Joey San Nicolas admits it's almost never that the department concludes these types of investigations, and he continues to ask the public for their assistance.

"We classify them as incendiary fires as being one of four possible causes. The last fire that was actually solved is the fire that just happened in Barrigada last week, which was actually considered accidental, caused by the 6-year-old boy playing with the lighter," he explained.

Anyone with information regarding the fires are urged to contact Guam Crimestoppers at 477-HELP (4357).
