EAST CAMDEN, N.J. -

Police in Camden are searching for two suspects in connection to a series of fires last week in the city's east side that were the result of arson.

According to police, the first fire sparked on December 7 and the most recent one was two days later, on December 9.

Police say between the 7th and 9th there were four vehicle fires that occurred between 2 a.m. and 3:30 a.m. and a fire on the porch of a home on December 9 at 4:38 a.m. Investigators believe the same people are responsible for the fires.

Police say the first suspect is between 17 and 20-years of age, standing 5'7" to 5'8" tall with a thin build and a small afro style haircut. He was last seen wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, black pants and black and white sneakers.

The second suspect is described by police as a boy between 12 and 13-years of age, standing 4'6" to 4'7" tall with a thin build and what police describe as a distinctively shaped nose. Police say the boy has a high pitch voice and was last seen wearing a brown hooded sweatshirt, black pants and white sneakers.

    NICE EASTER WEEKEND

    The first half of the holiday weekend has been great and Easter Sunday looks just as nice. Clouds thin out late tonight with temperatures falling back to the 40s.

    Initially it'll be jacket weather early Sunday morning but plenty of sunshine will warm us into the 60s by afternoon.  High temperatures will be a few degrees cooler than Saturday.

    It will be noticeably cooler and breezy at the shore with highs in the low 50s.  Quiet conditions continue into Monday.
