FOLLOWUP: 39th SW fire ruled arson

Since the house fire in the 2600 block of 39th SW early Sunday, we’ve been asking SFD about their determination of how it started. Today spokesperson David Cuerpo told WSB, “Fire investigators ruled the fire as intentionally set (incendiary). SPD is conducting a follow-up investigation.” No details were provided on why that determination was made; we have followup questions out to SPD and have not heard anything back. If you have any information, there’s a statewide tipline – 800-55-ARSON.

    I’m not surprised based on the neighborhood scuttlebutt regarding the fire.

        Not sure this is the place for rumor and gossip. I live just down the street as well. I think anyone who walked by the house knew someone there had issues. I was the same person who posted video of a weird guy casing homes in the area the night before. After I posted it and the fire a few neighbors filled me in on the story of the home and what happened. Sunday night SPD knocked on my door and asked a few questions about the guy and asked that if I saw him to call 911, he is wanted in connection to a crime, I asked if it was the fire, he didn’t say no……..

Sorry, comment time is over.
