If anyone knows anything about “a suspicious garage fire” from 2:30 a. m. Monday, the Havre Police Department would like to hear from them, possibly “for a reward. ”
The police issued a call for information this morning about the fire at 627 11th Street that they, and the Havre Fire Department, have been investigating since Monday night.
“Please contact Crime Stoppers with any information, ” the release says. “The tip can be reported anonymously and may be eligible for a reward. ”
The Crimestoppers phone number is 265-4444.
Carmen Schafer, resident of the house, said in an interview Monday that she and her neighbor had seen some suspicious activity before the blaze that made her believe it was arson.
First Schafer said she was being followed the day before the fire, by a group of men in a turquoise car, one of them holding a gas can.
Then she said her neighbor reported seeing a pickup truck turn off its lights and turn down the alley behind the house not long before the fire started.
