Second blaze in 24 hours extinguished at vacant Lima structure

LIMA — Lima firefighters responded to a second suspicious fire at a Fourth Street residence in as many days early Friday.

According to a department spokesman, firemen were dispatched at 6:05 a.m. to 1308 E. Fourth St. in reference to a fire at a vacant structure there.

Upon their arrival, firefighters found flames on the outside of the structure and into the attic of the home, owned by Tiffany Miller. Friday’s fire, which caused an additional $1,000 in damage to the structure, was extinguished and has been described by investigators as suspicious.

It was the second trip to the same location in just over 24 hours for firefighters. A Thursday morning fire, also described as suspicious, cased an estimated $6,000 in damages.

The blaze remains under investigation.
