Arsonist Suspected In Other Longview Fires

    More arson charges could soon come against an East Texas man, already accused of starting 2 fires.   Investigators believe 29- year- old Joseph Patrick Jones of White Oak could be behind several arsons over the past 2 years.

    Jones is already charged with two counts of arson in connection to a 2005 Longview fire. Authorities say thast blaze stemmed from an argument with the homeowner. Then last February, he was arrested for a fire at his estranged girlfriends home on Griffin street.

  Jones is in the Gregg county jail on 75-thousand dollars bail.
