The Monroe County Sheriff’s Office says that two vehicles owned by deputies were set on fire over the weekend.
The Monroe County Sheriff’s Office and Brockport Fire responded around 3:30 a.m. to a report of a vehicle fire in the driveway of a home in Clarkson.
The fire spread from the first vehicle to a second by the time firefighters got on scene. No injuries were reported, but damage to the nearby home was.
The vehicles were owned by deputies of the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office. Investigators say they don’t know the motive behind the fires, but are looking at nearby surveillance footage to continue the investigation.
“This type of behavior is extremely concerning to me,” said Monroe County Sheriff Todd Baxter. “Deputies and their families will always be my priority. Whatever the reason for this fire, know that our investigators are working diligently through the weekend to determine a cause. We are conducting a full-court press to find who is responsible. Make no mistake, we will find you and ensure those responsible are prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.”
