Arsonist strikes again?

The State Fire Marshal is being called back into the area following another suspicious fire, this one behind Rudd’s Funeral Home in Garland Thursday morning.  The blaze comes on the heels of a truck fire early Tuesday morning in Holmgren Estates and another fire at Bear River High School the week before.

Garland Fire Chief Rob Johnson said his department responded to the call about 5:30 a.m., to find a 1988 Jeep Wrangler fully engulfed.  The vehicle was owned by business owner Joe Rudd, who said it  had just been filled with gasoline, but was not locked.  The owner of a nearby business called Rudd about the fire after noticing smoke behind the funeral home.

The Jeep was parked next to a shop, which appeared to have also suffered some heat damage from the fire.  The vehicle was a total loss.

Garland and Tremonton police will add this fire to their ongoing investigation as they asked for the public’s help in reporting anything  that may appear to be out of the ordinary.  All of the incidents have occurred early in the morning and appear to be centralized around the high school, Tremonton Police Chief Dave Nance said.
