Unoccupied Parker Township home burns

The Randall Fire Department, with assistance from the Flensburg Fire Department, responded to a house fire Thursday at 22757 18th Ave. in Parker Township.

When the fire departments arrived, the entire roof was gone and if it wasn’t for the stucco exterior, the entire house would have been engulfed in flames. The firefighters sustained no injuries.

While the cause of the fire is unknown, the State Fire Marshall is investigating it as arson.

The house, unoccupied for several years, is situated on a dirt, 1.5-mile-long, road with little traffic. Tire tracks were found leading to the house, but it is unknown if they came from the alleged perpetrators or from the person who called 911. Nothing has been confirmed as yet.

If anyone has information concerning this fire or any other suspected arsons, call the Arson Hot Line at 1 (800) 723-2020.
