Authorities Investigating Three Suspicious Fires in Bryan County


CARTWRIGHT,OK--- The Oklahoma State Fire Marshal is currently investigating three overnight fires that happened in Bryan County over the weekend. The fires destroyed three trailer homes and a RV. All of the fires occurred in the same Cartwright neighborhood.

On Friday, a trailer home and RV off 4th Street, as well as a trailer home off Central Street, caught fire around 11 p.m. On Saturday, a trailer home off Persimmon Street caught fire around 2 a.m. Firefighters say they have thoroughly checked the area for suspects.

"We've checked and we've talked to neighbors. The Bryan County Sheriff's Office was out there with us and they've talked to the State Fire Marshal," Colbert Assistant Fire Chief Jonathan Horn said. 

Horn says all four structures are a total loss and that only one of the trailer homes was occupied.
The flames killed the dog living there, but no one else was injured.

Authorities are calling the fires suspicious and say the cause of the fires is still under investigation.
