Puyallup police and Central Pierce Fire and Rescue are investigating two recent arsons at the former Pioneer Museum.

The first fire occurred June 27 at 4 a.m. on the 2100 block of 19th Avenue SE, and the second took place Sunday a little before 2 a.m. in the same area. Both fires burned abandoned buildings formerly used for the Museum.

Investigators and firefighters are going door-to-door, dropping off flyers and talking with residents in hopes of getting information leading to an arrest. Puyallup police have increased patrols of the area and are encouraging residents to immediately report any suspicious or illegal activity by calling 911.

If you have any information on these fires, call Central Pierce Fire & Rescue at 253-538-6402 or Puyallup police 24-hour tip line at 253-770-3343.

Fire, Puyallup
