State and federal authorities want help identifying a man troopers say was seen near a structure fire the morning of July 3 in the Two Rivers area.
Alaska State Troopers, the Alaska State Fire Marshal and FBI are investigating several suspected incidents of arson that have occurred over the past three weeks in the Two Rivers and Pleasant Valley communities, Alaska State Troopers said in an alert.
In a release, the man authorities want to identify is shown in a photo wearing a khaki-colored hat, with a light beard.
