Police are looking for the owner of a charred sweater found at the scene of an arson fire that destroyed an empty house on Meadow Crossing Lane in the Glenridge neighborhood early Tuesday morning. The clothing was found on the back deck of the home – the point of origin for the fire – and may have been used to start the fire.
Tuesday’s was the third fire on Meadow Crossing Lane since December, all of which are under investigation. The last fire, on April 8, destroyed two homes and damaged four just five houses away from the fire Tuesday.
All of the evidence collected from the scene of the fire has been sent to the State Bureau of Investigation for further analysis.
