(Richmond, IN)--Arsonists struck multiple locations in Richmond nearly simultaneously Friday morning and stretched the city’s fire department very thin. Two different garages and one couch that was sitting outside were lit on fire in the area of the first three blocks of North 18th and 19th all within 15 minutes of each other at around 3 o’clock Friday morning. "We actually had four of the five engines out on the garage fires. We only had one engine remaining." said Battalion Chief Tim Brown. A garage on 18th was a total loss. There were no injuries. Police are working to obtain surveillance video.
