Arson detectives need help identifying anyone responsible for a series arson fires that have been occurring since early 2010 at several homes and apartments in southwest Houston.

Investigators have determined that a recent group of arson fires -- including one as recently as February 24 -- may be linked to ones reported last year.

In early 2010, a string of fires occurring in southwest Houston appeared to be related.

During the course of investigation, a video tape came to light that showed a man carrying a clear liquid and the ignition of a fire.

Shortly after the release of the video, a few more fires erupted then they stopped for several months.

However, piecing together information from a sporadic group of fires that occurred around beginning in December and into this year, arson investigators believe the person(s) they were looking for in relation to the fires set in southwest Houston may responsible for the most recent string.

Investigators have no description of the suspect but they're pursuing leads.

But they ask anyone who may have information to give Crime Stoppers a call at 222-TIPS or call the Houston Arson Division at 713-865-9000.

The list of locations believed to be related include the following addresses.
