OLTON, Texas (KCBD) - Officials with the Olton Police Department and the State Fire Marshall’s Office are asking Olton residents to check their security camera footage from Friday, October 18 between 1 a.m. and 3 a.m.

They are looking for any help into the investigation of the series of fires from that night.

The first fire was reported at a home on Avenue G. About 30 minutes after that call was made VFD then got another call for a home on fire on the town’s Main Street.

Those on scene report the home on Avenue G only had exterior damage to its garage. That state fire marshal continues to investigate the cause of those three fires.
