CLEMSON POLICE DEPARTMENT CONDUCTING A FIRE INVESTIGATION

At approximately 12:30 pm, Saturday, March 25, 2012, the Clemson Police Department received a phone call from a resident on Houston Street stating smoke was observed from the area behind the townhomes on Houston Street.  Officers and CUFD were dispatched and upon arrival they located subjects with a water hose attempting to extinguish the fire.   The fire was started near the lake shoreline where a resident observed subjects earlier that morning around a small campfire.  Investigation revealed that the fire started from the campfire that was not properly extinguished.  If anyone has any information regarding the identity of these subjects, please contact Detective James Peppers at 864-624-2014.
