Authorities investigating back-to-back fires at West Deptford property

Authorities are investigating a possible connection between two back-to-back fires that occurred just days apart at a vacant property in West Deptford.

According to an Associated Press report at the Courier Post, officials say crews were called to the property on Mansion Avenue on the nights of Oct. 30 and Nov. 7 for separate reports of a fire.

While fighting Saturday’s blaze, authorities reportedly noticed a significant amount of blood inside the empty property, which they say may indicate someone had been at the property and may need medical care.

Authorities are asking anyone with information to contact West Deptford Township Police Detective John Petroski at (856) 224-8227 or Col. John Craig at (856) 853-4599, ext. 170. Anonymous tips can be texted to GIOTIP.
