TULSA, Okla. -

Tulsa Police arrested two people accused of setting two fires over the weekend and fire marshals are now investigating a third fire.

Fire Marshals said someone set a box truck on fire in a parking lot near I-44 and Peoria. They are asking for help identifying a man caught on video near the scene.

Investigators said surveillance video shows the truck on fire and then a man starts walking away from the truck. They said he is not a suspect right now but they believe he could have information about the fire.

The truck belongs to Quality Thrift store and investigators said the truck is destroyed.

Andy Little with the Tulsa Fire department said they've had quite a few arsons lately and this one is a little odd because it happened along a busy street in daylight.

"He was in the area at the moment the fire started. So we would certainly like to discuss that with him and find out what information he has and if he wasn't involved then maybe he know who was,” said Little.

Investigators ask anyone who was in this area around 8:30 a.m. Monday, or has any information to call Crime Stoppers at 918-596-COPS message Tulsa CrimeStoppers.
