El Paso, TX — Not one, not even two, but five dumpsters caught fire late Monday evening in West El Paso.
The scorched dumpsters were extinguished within a mile away from each other. Authorities say three were found on Shadow Mountain and Enterprise, near the Seville Apartments. Two were found on Sunland Park and Mesa Street. Not only are the dumpsters near living areas, they're near businesses as well which many patrons frequent.
No injuries were reported and all fires were contained to the dumpster. Fire investigators are asking for the public’s assistance with any information. A green Jeep Cherokee was seen at two of the dumpster fires and is thought to be possibly involved. Anyone with any information regarding these fires is asked to call the Fire Marshal’s office at (915) 485-5699 or Crime Stoppers of El Paso at 915-566-TIPS (8477).
