Fire Department investigators are looking for Paul Triplett and Quinteria Sanders in connection with the fires, Combs said.
Triplett, 31, is described as 6 feet, 2 inches tall, weighing 240 pounds, with a medium complexion, short hair and a light beard, Combs said.
Sanders, 21, is described as 5 feet 7 inches tall, with a slender build, dark complexion and long hair, Combs said.
An employee at the Wal-Mart, 3132 College Drive, discovered the fire about 8:50 a.m., Robert Combs said in a news release.
An employee put out the fire and others ushered customers from the store, Combs said.
An employee also noticed the fire at the Wal-Mart, 2171 O’Neal Lane, about 9:05 a.m., Combs said.
Employees extinguished the fires, which were started in the home living sections of the stores, Combs said.
Officials believe each store lost sustained about $11,000 in damage and loss of business, Combs said. No injuries were reported in either fire, Combs said.
Anyone with information about Triplett and Sanders’ location is asked to contact fire investigators at (225) 354-1419 or (225) 389-2053, or Crime Stoppers at (225) 344-STOP.
