Multiple fires Friday morning along a 10-mile stretch of Interstate 95 in Waterville and Sidney were set intentionally and police, immediately afterward, were looking for a white car with two men in it, Maine State Police said Friday.

Six fires along the southbound lanes between mile 126 in Waterville and mile 116 in Sidney were set shortly before 10 a.m.

By Friday night, there was no new information on the fires or who might have set them, said Steve McCausland, spokesman for the state Department of Public Safety.

Police, fire departments, the Office of the State Fire Marshal and the Maine Forest Service all became involved after multiple grass fires were reported along the highway, beginning shortly before 10 a.m. Numerous drivers called in the fires along the 10-mile stretch.

“We are looking for your help in identifying a white newer style sedan that may have been pulled over or made frequent stops along this stretch of roadway then accelerated at a high rate of speed traveling south,” state police Sgt. Peter Michaud said in a news released issued by McCausland shortly after the fires were reported.

All the fires were extinguished by the Waterville and Sidney fire departments.

State police ask that anyone with information about the incidents call Trooper John Lacoste, Troop C, at 624-7076.
