Police seek young girls after 2 fires ruled arson

HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -

Two fires early Monday morning in Harrisburg have been ruled arson, according to police.  The fires happened on both Susquehanna and Penn Streets.

Police say the two blazes are connected and they are looking for several suspects, which happen to be young girls.

Police said they are reviewing a surveillance video but no other details about the investigation were made available.

On Tuesday residents of the 2000 block of Susquehanna Street returned to their homes to salvage what was left.

Edward Daniels 22, lived there with his family, including a girlfriend and newborn daughter.  He still cannot believe the damage that was done.

"I just don't understand how people can do that," Daniels said.

Thirteen adults, five children and three pets were displaced by fires, according to Harrisburg Fire Chief Robert Talloni.

No residents were injured in the fires Monday morning, but one firefighter was sent to the hospital for dehydration. He was later released and went back to fight the fire.
