Photos show a white vehicle seen near the Project Defending Life building around the time the fires were set there. Investigators would like to talk to this driver to determine whether he or she witnessed anything. The driver is not being called a suspect at this time.

Anyone with information about these fires or who recalls seeing anything suspicious in the area at the time of the fires is asked to call the FBI (24 hours) at 505-889-1300.
