Another home fire joins arson list

May 13, 2011

Indianapolis arson investigators are looking for the cause of a fire at a vacant two-story home at 31st Street and College Avenue early Friday morning—the latest in a string of suspicious fires. Fire crews responding to the blaze at about 1:30 a.m. smelled gasoline inside the home. Officials say someone used an accelerant to set the carpet on fire. Numerous homes have been set on fire in Indianapolis this week, including at least seven Tuesday morning.
