Arson Investigations

The Longview Fire Marshal’s Office strives to perform quality investigations by determining the origin and cause of fires and detaining person(s) responsible when a crime has occurred.

This section responds in the event of incendiary fires, multiple alarm fires, fire deaths, bombings and criminal or terrorist activity related with fires. 

The crime of arson is one of the most costly human-made disasters. Arson indirectly contributes to increased insurance premiums, higher medical costs, lost jobs, lost income, and the increased costs of fire services. We need your help to combat this serious crime.                                                

The Fire Marshal's Office is responsible for the investigation of all reported arson.  If you have any information on an arson fire please call 903-237-1119 or Gregg County Crime Stoppers 903-236-7867.
