Police Now Suspect Golf Course Fire Was Set
(CBS Connecticut) – Meriden police now say they’re seeking a person of interest in connection with a restaurant fire this morning at Hunter Golf Club.
Initially, the fire marshal had suspected the cause of the 3 a. m. blaze at Violi’s Restaurant to be a mechanical issue involving a golf cart. But now, police have released surveillance video which seems to depict a man carrying a gasoline can. That person is wearing a baseball cap and glasses and may be talking on a cell phone.
Anyone who has any information is urged to call Meriden police at 203-630-6318.
