The Evansville Police Department says a Wednesday night fire at a W. Florida St. home is currently being investigated as an arson.
EPD Officers spoke with the victim after they responded to the 1100 block of W. Florida St. on Wednesday night after 9:00 p.m.
The victim told police that they were in the bathroom when they heard a crackling sound outside of the window, at which point they looked outside and saw fire.
Before EPD Officers arrived, the Evansville Fire Department was on-scene and had put out the fire. EFD Investigators said that an accelerant was used to start the fire and that it appeared to have been poured on the fence and possibly the lower part of the house before being ignited.
The victim and their children were inside of the house when the fire started but no injuries were reported.
