SSFD Investigating Fire Involving Stolen Vehicle

A Jefferson Street fire involving a stolen vehicle is being investigated by Sulphur Springs Fire Department.

Officials responded between 8 and 9 p.m. Aug. 24, 2022, on Jefferson Street to the blaze. The vehicle found at the roadside with the keys still in the ignition, fire investigators reported.

A records check using vehicle identifiers showed the vehicle had recently been reported to authorities in Texarkana, Arkansas as stolen. Items found in the vehicle also matched the description of items reported stolen from another city. Based on those factors and investigators’ findings, the blaze is being considered “incendiary” and is still being investigated.

SSFD Assistant Fire Marshals Duane Sprague and Aaron Kager are overseeing the ongoing investigation.
