NAPLES, Fla. - A neighborhood on edge. Now four homes may have have been intentionally set on fire, and the arsonists is still out there.
Wednesday, deputies went door to door on Painted Leaf Lane to try and drum up more leads from Tuesday night's fire.
"We've had a couple incidents that are suspicious in nature, so tonight we're out doing a canvas in the neighborhoods," Sgt. Alan Flanagan explains homeowner Rachel Wolff on her doorstep.
Deputies asked questions ranging from "have you seen anything suspicious" to "do you know of any troubled teens in the area."
The Sheriff's Office says this tactic works.
"Like this lady gave us something, that she found something on a website in the past year. That may be something to look at," Flanagan says.
For Wolff, who lives just two doors down from Tuesday night's fire, seeing the deputies gives some relief to the panic she's felt since the fires began.
"I figured they'd be asking everybody around. If they didn't I'd be even more scared they weren't doing their job," Wolff tells us.
Also noticeable is a sign on nearby Santa Barbara Boulevard asking drivers to reports anything suspicious. Flanagan tells WINK News the public needs to report what they see right away in order for the information to be most useful and investigators to find the arsonists.
Deputies will be out again Thursday one street over where another house caught fire recently.
