Authorities turned to the public for help Thursday in trying to identify an arsonist who they said set two overnight fires in Clifton.

Detectives investigating the Monday Highland Avenue garbage can blazes – one at 3:30 a.m. and the other at 4:45 a.m. – found a surveillance image of the hooded suspect that Passaic County Prosecutor Camelia M. Valdes shared Thursday afternoon.

The first fire caused no structural damage to the owner’s home, while the second displaced a family after causing first-floor damage, Valdes said in a joint news release with Clifton Police Chief Thomas Rinaldi and Fire Chief Frank Prezioso.

No injuries were reported.
