BENTON TOWNSHIP Firefighters are calling a fire that occurred in Benton Township this weekend “suspicious.”
The Herald Palladium reports that the blaze broke out in the 2400 block of Crawford Drive just before 11 Sunday night.
No one was home when it started, but the neighbor who reported the fire to 911 tried to enter the house to make sure no one was in danger. That neighbor told investigators that a door had been forced open.
The fire started in a bedroom and caused $70,000 in damages.
Fortunately no one was injured.
