Authorities are seeking the public’s help in a pair of almost-simultaneous garage fires in Maywood that they said were deliberately set.
One of the blazes was set in a garage below a Windsor Court apartment building that holds several tenants, Bergen County Prosecutor John L. Molinelli said, adding that “the possibility of injury and/or death existed.” It destroyed one vehicle and damaged others, the prosecutor said.
The other broke out around the same time – 5:30 a.m. Sunday — in a detached garage of an apartment complex on Hammell Place, causing explosions from several containers being kept there, he said.
Molinelli asked that anyone with information about the arsons call his office’s anonymous TIPS line at (201) 226-5532 or the Maywood Police Department at (201) 845-8800 .
