West Deptford House Catches Fire Twice in Less Than a Week

West Deptford Township

The Gloucester County Prosecutor's Office and West Deptford police are investigating two suspicious fires in less than a week at a vacant home on Mansion Avenue.

The Oct. 30 and Nov. 7 fires, which occurred during the night, were quickly extinguished by crews preventing extensive damage to the home.

On November 7, during a search after the fire, authorities found a substantial amount of blood was found at the scene, raising the possibility that the unknown suspect was injured and required treatment.

Anyone with information about the fires is asked to contact Det. John Petroski at 856-224-8227 or Corp. John Craig of the West Deptford PD at 853-4599, ext. 170.
