Bensalem police are looking for a couple suspected of arson and they are asking for the public's help to identify the pair.
According to police, a man and a woman intentionally set fire to an RV in the parking lot of Big Joe’s Auto Sales on Lincoln Highway early Sunday. Police responded to the rear of the Lincoln Motel for a report of a structure fire at around 4:45 a.m.
When they arrived, they found the burning RV. As they were combatting the fire, a large propane cylinder located under the RV exploded, "causing firefighters to retreat for their safety,” police said.
The fire destroyed the RV and severely damaged four other nearby cars. As much as $100,000 worth of damage was reported by police.
Anyone with information should call Detective Tom Jackson at (215) 633-3667 and/or Battalion Chief Robert Sponheimer (215) 633-3618. Tips can be emailed anonymously to firstname.lastname@example.org.
