Police release video of suspects in Crosby house fire

CROSBY, TX (KTRK) -- For the second time in a week, someone set a fire outside a home in Crosby and an alert neighbor put out the blaze.

The most recent attempt happened Saturday around 3:30am in the 17000 block of Scuttle Way. This time there were surveillance cameras rolling and ready for the suspects.

"I feel that they came back to finish what they didn't finish the first time," said homeowner Allen Hill.

Hill, his wife, her mother and a woman who is going through a divorce were all asleep at the time of the attack.

You can see on the video two men walk up Hill's driveway, pour something on it, the garage, around the side and the back of the house, and then ignite it. Hill says he's never seen the men before. But he's convinced the surveillance video gives investigators another clue: a vehicle which he believes belongs to the husband of the woman going through that divorce and staying temporarily at his home.

"He's blaming me for their divorce because I'm helping her out," said Hill.

Hill tells us the man has previously made threats toward him and his family. Investigators confirm they are looking at that man and his possible connection to this case.

There is a $5,000 reward for the arrest and conviction of the men responsible. If you recognize either of the men in the surveillance video you can contact Harris County Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS OR www.crime-stoppers.org.
