Arson suspected in Arlington house fire

August 28, 2007

Update- Cade Fowler reports that Law enforcement says that two teenagers have been arrested, and may be charged in this crime, and other break-ins in the area.

Arlington -- A 75-year-old Arlington woman is homeless after police say her home was burglarized and then set on fire.

Fortunately, Onez Lee was not home at the time, but investigators believe the fire may have been arson.

The fire began just before 6:00AM morning and was spotted by an Arlington Police Officer.

When officers got into the home they found it had been ransacked, and now arson investigators have been called in.

"A deputy on patrol noticed smoke coming out of the house around this side that we are standing in front of. At that time he called for a fire truck. When I arrived he told me had that he saw some suspicious activity that may cause this to be arson. That's when we called the fire Marshall in," said Arlington Police Chief K. C. Taylor.

The homeowner, whose sister recently died, lived at her Arlington residence for almost 30 years.

There is a $10,000 reward for anyone with information that could lead to an arrest.
