Old West End house fire ruled arson by investigators

Posted: Updated:

TOLEDO, OH (WTOL) - Fire crews responded to a vacant house fire in the Old West End early Tuesday. Investigators on scene have now ruled that it was an arson.

No one was injured in the blaze at 2715 Scottwood.

A trail of gasoline was discovered on the second floor. The fire spread to the third floor.

One of the crew members said it was a difficult fire to fight because of the intense heat. There was a 2-3 minute period at first where they just couldn't begin battling the blaze. But crews were able to get the fire out before it broke through the roof or spread to neighboring homes, which were occupied.
