Manchester, NH Arson Suspect Charged With Witness Intimidation

MANCHESTER, NH (CBS) – The city of Manchester, New Hampshire is dealing with two more suspicious fires this week, adding to a problem officials have been trying to deal with for years.

On Monday morning, a garage on Dubuque Street was torched.

WBZ-TV’s Jim Smith reports.

Less than 72 hours later, firefighters put out a small fire at an abandoned apartment building on Notre Dame Avenue.  A witness saw three people near the building acting suspiciously moments before that fire, and arson is suspected.

These fires come In the same week police arrested 24-year-old Joshua Clark, a suspect in an unrelated arson case from last year, and charged him with witness intimidation connected to that arson.

Clark is accused of telling two women that bad things happen to snitches and referenced one of the women’s sons.
