Investigating a rash of arson grassfires in Rogers County

Investigators are hoping to find the people responsible for setting several fires in Rogers County.

Five fires this week in the Claremore area are of particular interest. They are believed to be the work of arsonists. Those fires have scorched more than 700 acres.

One of those fires came dangerously close to Paul Daniel's home, livestock and the dozens of racing pigeons Daniel raises. "They have no remorse for what they're doing. It endangers people's lives and animal’s lives. It wouldn't be good if we caught them, I'll put it like that."

False calls are also posing quite a challenge for firefighters, especially volunteer departments. Bogus calls waste valuable time and resources.
