Arson Ruled in Philadelphia Salon Fire, Suspects Sought

Philadelphia police have determined that a fire that occurred last month at a salon in the Mantua section of the city was a case of arson. The incident, which took place on January 9, involved not one, but two intentionally set fires at the business located on the 4100 block of Lancaster Avenue.

Surveillance video captured the suspects believed to be responsible for igniting the fires. The footage shows the first fire being set at approximately 2:23 a.m., but fortunately, it extinguished on its own. However, the same individuals returned at 2:57 a.m. and set another fire, which required the intervention of the fire department to be extinguished.

Thankfully, all residents living in the apartments above the salon managed to evacuate safely during the early morning incident.

The suspects were seen fleeing the scene in a light-colored Honda CRV. Authorities have noted that the vehicle may have a missing or replaced aftermarket and an unpainted black fuel filler door.

Philadelphia police are urging anyone with information regarding the incident or the identity of the suspects to come forward. They can contact the authorities by calling or texting 215-686-TIPS (8477).
