Parkland neighborhood fire ruled arson by investigators

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - A fire over the weekend in the Parkland neighborhood has been ruled arson.

Major Henry Ott with the Louisville Metro Arson Squad says the fire started in the back of a vacant home on Sunday at 26th and Grand Avenue.

It spread to another home and caused damage to the siding of a church.

Arson investigators say the fire was intentionally set.

In March, there were three other fires in the nearby Portland neighborhood that were ruled arson and are still under investigation.

Investigators have information on a person that may be connected to at least one of those fires.

“Obviously it's possible that when you have several fires that occur on the same day or within a short time period that it's the same person, so we're trying to identify that person and then we'll obviously compare the notes from what happened in March to what happened over the weekend,” said Major Henry Ott with the Louisville Metro Arson Squad.

Investigators have not yet determined if the fires are connected.
