FAIRFIELD - Fairfield police continue to investigate whether a truck fire on Nichols Avenue early yesterday was intentionally set.

Police say that a witness reported seeing two men run from the scene minutes before the fire broke out.

The men were spotted getting into a black car on Villa Avenue.

Authorities say the truck fire may be linked to an attempted arson on Sampson Street in Bridgeport earlier in the night.

There may also be a connection to a January incident at Owen Fish Park in which police say a Dumpster was set on fire.
