Person of interest sought in Olean arson fire
No arrests have been made yet in an arson fire last month on West Sullivan Street. Olean police say a man ignited objects on a porch while a family of four was inside sleeping. There were no injuries. Police say witnesses saw a heavy-set white male in the area at the time. The person of interest also has a raspy voice according to witnesses. Today police are asking for the public’s help. If you know anything or saw anything, contact Olean police. Police also said the man may have been with a female at the time of the December 17th fire.
