Lake Dillon Fire, local law enforcement seek information on two vehicle arson fires
Investigators with Lake Dillon Fire-Rescue, the Frisco Police Department and the Silverthorne Police Department are seeking additional information on two vehicle arson fires set on the night of Jan. 30-31.
The fires, intentionally set a short time apart from each other, damaged a car parked at 1127 9000 Divide Road in Frisco and destroyed a van parked at 171 W. Ninth St., in Silverthorne.
“Arson is a very serious crime that endangers firefighters and the public alike and costs each of us in insurance premiums and firefighting and investigation costs. This is a crime against all of us,” said Lake Dillon Fire Chief Jeff Berino.
Anyone with information about the fires is asked to call Lake Dillon Fire Investigator Kim McDonald at (970) 262-5203; or the Frisco Police Department at (970) 668-3579; or the Silverthorne Police Department at (970) 262-7320. Additionally, tips may be provided to the Colorado Bureau of Investigation’s Arson Hotline at 1-877-89-ARSON.
Additionally, local law-enforcement agencies encourage drivers to lock their vehicles when parked.
