LEE – Police are seeking a local man for allegedly setting a Belle Lane home and garage on fire Monday evening.

Warrants were issued for Donald Dubbs, 58, of 23 Belle Lane, on the charges of setting fire to two structures, one of which was occupied.

Dubbs has brown hair, blue eyes and he is about 5'9". He may be driving a black 1999 Ford Escort with a Guinness sticker on the back window and New Hampshire license plate number 345-1264, according to police.

"He is considered dangerous so do not approach, if seen please call 911," Dronsfield said.

Police, firefighters and emergency personnel responded at 6:48 p.m. to a structure fire at 23 Belle Lane. On arrival, emergency responders found a two-vehicle garage fully involved.

"Upon further investigation, it was found that a single residence behind the garage had been set on fire, the fire charred the exterior of the building before going out," according to Sgt Tom Dronsfield.

Due to the extent of the fire, a second alarm was sounded. Local crews were assisted by firefighters from Barrington, Dover, Durham, Epping, Exeter, Madbury, Newmarket, Nottingham and Pease Tradeport.

Crews from McGregor Ambulance also responded to the scene.
