Arson ruled in two Portage County fires


The Division of State Fire Marshal has ruled two early morning fires in Windham as ARSON.

The first fire was reported at a single family home on Blanton Drive at 2:28 a.m.; the second fire was reported at 3:24 a.m. at an apartment building on Green Meadow Drive.  

Both structures are considered total losses.  

Investigators have determined both fires were intentionally set. Because these are ongoing criminal investigations, specific information including how and where the fires started has not been released.

No one was injured in either fire.

A reward of up to $5,000 is being offered to anyone with information about either one of the fires.

Anyone with information is encouraged to contact the Division of State Fire Marshal at 1-800-589-2728.
