Fire investigators are asking the public to help solve a rash of apparent arson fires in northwest Oklahoma City.

A woman was injured in one of the fires late Sunday, a fire official said.

Six fires have been reported since Sept. 3 in the area of NW 39 and N Pennsylvania Avenue.

About midnight Sunday, fire broke out in trash bins between two houses at 1819 and 1825 NW 42. A woman in one of the houses fell trying to get out of her home and suffered a head injury, District Chief Randy Williams said.

“We're getting a little nervous and would like to make an arrest before someone gets hurt,” Wiliams said.

The Sunday night fire caused extensive damage to both homes. Other fires have been set to grass, Williams said.

Fire investigators think a transient person who has been seen in the area might be the arsonist. Anyone with information can call fire investigators at (405) 297-3321. Callers can remain anonymous.
