On November 7, 2021, at 8:15 p.m., Branson Police Officers responded to an initial report of an explosion at the Branson Landing parking garage located at 3 Branson Landing.

Two vehicles, as well as the parking structure, were damaged in this fire. Branson Firefighters were able to quickly extinguish the fire and Branson Police initiated a criminal investigation into the cause of the fire.

The investigation revealed that a drill had been used to remove gas from the vehicle gas tank when the fire started. Further investigation found this was the second location in which this act had occurred as the suspects had removed gas from a vehicle in the Cox Hospital parking lot earlier that same evening.

A 23-year-old male and a 19-year-old female, both from Springfield, were located and arrested. The two were then also tied to significant damages to one of the ball fields at Ball Parks of America, located at 1000 Pat Nash Dr, which occurred after the fire at the parking garage.

This is an ongoing investigation. Formal charges will be sought from the Taney County Prosecutor. All persons involved in this incident were located and there is no continued threat to the public.
