Saturday Morning Fire Deliberately Set


A Saturday morning fire at a vacant home northeast of Knox was deliberately set, according to fire investigators.

The Washington Township Volunteer Fire Department was called to an unoccupied home at 8875 East 25 North in Knox just after 5 a.m. and remained on the scene for nearly two hours. They called in an investigator from the state fire marshal’s office to check things out as well.

Anyone with information about the origin of the fire can call the Indiana Arson Hotline at 1-800-382-4628. Anonymous tips are accepted, and cash rewards may be available if information leads to an arrest and conviction.
