Arsonist targets more Hazel Green cars

HAZEL GREEN, AL (WAFF) -- The state Fire Marshals' Office has launched an investigation after several overnight car fires in Madison County.

Investigator Ken Andrews with the Madison County Fire Marshal's Office said there have been 12 car fires in the Hazel Green area in the past week.

A couple who lives on Bluewater Drive in Hazel Green awoke to three cars burning in their driveway around 1:30 a.m.

"We called 911, got my family out," said Matt Mason, who was targeted by the arsonist. "The gentleman and I proceeded to grab a hose tried to fight the fire before the volunteer fire department got here and arrived on scene."

Several other car fires were reported in the area last night. All the auto fires in the past week have happened within a five-mile radius.

If you have any information, please call the Madison County Fire Marshal at (256) 851-6947.
