Arson probe training August 11-16

August 10, 2013

Oconee’s public safety personnel this week take training in arson investigative techniques. This training, to be offered with the help of the state police, will center on techniques, case study, fire behavior and the need to document what’s found at arson scenes. Charlie King, Oconee fire chief, considers the August 11-16 training especially timely. County Emergency Services is turning to the community for any information that can help solve the August 2 home fire at 352 Timberlake One Drive in the Crossroads/Townville area. King said, “After several days of joint investigation between the Oconee County Sheriff’s Office and Emergency Services, we are unable to rule out the possibility of the fire being intentionally set.” The fire is believed to have started in the back of the home and spread to the living space. Those who may have information are asked to call the Sheriff’s Office or the SC Arson Hotline at 1-800/92-ARSON.
