Investigation continues into two suspicious East Lubbock fires

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Investigators are looking into two suspicious fires in east Lubbock that happened over the weekend.

Firefighters responded to a blaze around 11:00 p.m. Sunday behind a vacant business in the 2200 block of east 50th Street.

The fire damaged a storage shed, but did not spread to the main business.

Garrett Nelson with the Lubbock Fire Department says the gates surrounding the business were locked, leading investigators to believe the fire is possibly arson.

Meanwhile, the Lubbock Fire Marshal's Office says an explosion Friday night at a home in east Lubbock was deemed arson.

Firefighters say the home at 3408 King Avenue exploded and then burned to the ground.

If you know anything about these fires, please call the Fire Marshal's Office at (806) 775-02646 or Crime Line at (806) 741-1000.
