PRESS RELEASE FROM LINCOLN COUNTY: In the early morning hours of May 20, 2013 the Lincoln County Sheriffs Dispatch Center received a call reporting a vehicle on fire in the town of Sprague. Emergency responders arrived on scene at approximately 1:16 A.M. to find a full size pickup fully engulfed.
Shortly after arriving at the scene a second 911 call to dispatch was received reporting a second vehicle fire also in the Sprague City limits.
Deputies are investigating both fires as being intentionally set and an active "Arson" investigation has began. "This type of reckless criminal activity will not be tolerated." A home in one of the incidents was potentially threatened as well as other motor vehicles parked close by. Additionally putting at risk our volunteer fire fighters and deputies is not acceptable.
Any tips should be reported to the Lincoln County Sheriffs Office at (509) 725-3501.
