Possible arson investigated
Police are looking for the person (s) responsible for two fires at the same apartment.
The first fire took place at 9:38 a.m. on July 10, when patrol members responded to a structure fire at the 300 block of 32nd Street West.
Police assisted in the evacuation of some tenants and with the preservation of evidence. No one was injured and no hospital trips were required.
The second fire took place on at about 2:51 a.m. on June 17 at the same building.
Once again, no one was injured, but some residents were forced to evacuate for a period of time.
