Rash of palm tree fires hits east side

Posted: Updated:

An investigation is underway into who is setting palm trees on fire on the east side. Tucson Fire says 11 have been torched since the first of August.

Evidence is still being collected, and at least one neighbor has posted signs asking people to report any suspicious behavior. "I don't think they understand the magnitude of what they've done," says Carlton. This could have very easily set the house on fire and killed somebody."
