Arson is often the first choice of criminals seeking to inflict pain and damage on property owners and their properties.

The State Fire Marshal is observing National Arson Prevention Week, to remind homeowners of ways they can discourage arsonists.

Springfield Township Fire Chief Ron Henry suggests you keep your property clear of refuse and brush, keep the exterior well-lighted, and remove combustable items.

He also encourages everyone to get involved in neighbohood watch groups to be on the lookout for suspicious people and activity.

And he says keep on eye on children, because kids tend to have a fascination with fire, that can turn unhealthy.

Most fire departments have firefighters who are trained on how to counsel children about the dangers to life and property of playing with matched and lighters, and setting things on fire.

The Fire Marshal has a Blue Ribbon Arson Commitee which offers reward money for information leading to the arrest and conviction of an arsonist.
