A blaze that displaced four people and injured a Springfield firefighter is being called suspicious in origin.
That fire broke out late Tuesday in a home on Pennsylvania Avenue, near Lanphier High School. Fire Chief Ken Fustin says the occupants… two adults and two children… were not home at the time of the fire. They are receiving help from the Red Cross.
Fustin says investigators consider the fire suspicious, after discovering signs of forced entry and evidence of accelerants to start the fire. A fire captain suffered a twisted knee while battling that blaze… and that could increase the penalties if the person who started the fire is caught.
