Police searching for man who set fire to local school barn shed

WACO, TX (KXXV) - Hewitt police and the fire marshal are asking for the public's help to find an arsonist who set fire to Midway ISD property.

Surveillance video at the Midway ISD FFA agricultural science barn caught the man early Thursday morning. The video shows him petting cows, then he goes off camera.

Police believe he set fire to a shed nearby. The damage estimate is about $7,000 and destroyed hay and seed.

Police say his actions before the fire indicate he may have caused the fire.

"The behavior inside the barn is a whole other issue, it's inconsistent with the kids that care for those animals. It's just kind of a weird vibe I guess, is the best way to put it," said Chief Jim Devlin, Hewitt Police Department "He's not mean, he's not malicious towards the animals he's just petting them."
