MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Eight arson fires have hit the 38109 zip code in Southwest Memphis in the past three months, and the Memphis Fire Department is asking for information to solve the cases.

Five of the fires happened on the same street, and most happened within a few days of each other. The fires have cost nearly $290,000 in damage.

The fires happened on these dates and at these locations:

June 25 – 1305 Longcrest
Aug. 3 – 5060 Urbana Road
Aug. 4 – Urbana at Rosecrest
Sept. 6 – 5110 Urbana Road
Sept. 6 – Urbana at Rosecrest
Sept. 15 – 5075 Bowers
Sept. 16 – 1166 Margaret
Sept. 20 – 5066 Urbana Road

Tyrone Griggs, who attends church and fixes homes in the area, said the fires are the result of the area being neglected by the city.

“It’s a travesty for the city to treat the residents like this here,” Griggs said.

The first fire was intentionally set at a church on Longcrest and the latest fire was set early Tuesday morning at a shed on Urbana Road where they say four other fires were set.

We spotted a gas can just feet away from the charred debris inside the shed. Griggs told us he also saw it at the scene.

With the area now filled with burned-out homes, he believes the homeless population nearby may have had a hand in the destruction.

“We have lots of homeless people that are surviving and struggling breaking into these homes trying to take over, so what do you do? Fast as we fix up they set the house on fire,” Griggs said.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 901-528-CASH or the state Arson Hotline at 1-800-762-3017. You could be eligible for a cash reward.
