Suspects sought in Rancho Cordova area arsons

Sacramento Metropolitan Fire District officials seek the public's help identifying the people responsible for a series of grass fires in the Rancho Cordova area.

Firefighters have responded to 12 intentionally set fires in the area over the past three weeks, according to a district news release.

Investigators believe the fires are related because of their proximity to one another and their occurrence in the late evening.

The fires have occurred in an area extending from just west of Bradshaw Road east to Mather Field Road, and from Folsom Boulevard on the north to an area south of Old Placerville Road.

Although firefighters quickly contained the fires, officials said many were near homes and damaged residential fences.

Anyone with information regarding the identity of potential suspects is asked to call (916) 859-4300.
