Suspects were seen fleeing on foot.

12:49am–#Fairfield–Firefighters quickly extinguished a pick up truck fire on Nichols Avenue, which is right off Villa Avenue closer towards Brooklawn Avenue. The truck was fully involved when firefighters arrived.  Firefighters were so quick in fact that the fire was extinguished prior to my arrival,I only had a six minute travel time.

Firefighters and police suspect arson.  Suspects were seen running down Nichols Street and jumped into a car on Villa Avenue that fled eastbound towards Bridgeport.   The detective bureau was immediately notified and the investigation is underway.  This may be related to a truck fire in Bridgeport on Thursday February 2, 2012.  Both vehicles have similar evidence found at the scene.
