|Lindsey Drive fire investigated as arson|
More details are now known about the house fire on Lindsey Drive from Thursday.
Eight trucks and 15 Hopkinsville fire-fighters responded at 11:41am to the first call of fire at 2813 Lindsey and found the vacant home already fully involved. The report says it appeared the blaze began in an attached garage. As previously reported, Inspector Cecelia Cloos said there was no electricity hooked up to the house.
Aproximately 50-thousand dollars worth of damage was done to the structure belonging to Tamra Grant of Hopkinsville. Fire-fighters remained on the scene until about 2:30 and were called back just after 10pm when it flared back up again.
Crews found small flames in the kitchen area and took about an hour and a half to extinguish the fire and to look for other hot spots.
The Hopkinsville Police Department is assisting in what’s termed an arson investigation on the HPD report. At least one suspect is listed on the report from Officer Gabe Gillingham, though his or her name is redacted.
