Suspected arsonist sought in Battle Creek


BATTLE CREEK (WKZO) -- Battle Creek police are looking for a man who set fire to his ex-girlfriend’s home at 68 McKinley St. Friday morning.

Neighbors saw him cruising the neighborhood, and then saw him running from the home and soon after saw smoke.

He had apparently sent a text Wednesday night saying that he was going to set fire to the place.

One of the neighbors snapped a picture of his driver’s license. 

They believe he threw a gasoline bomb at the house, which suffered about 20-thousand dollars in smoke and fire damage.
