House Fire Raises Questions

Posted June 22, 1997 12:00 a.m. EDT

— An abandoned house is in ruins after catching fire, and investigators say the cause looks suspicious.

The fire broke out Saturday night in Cumberland County at a house at the corner of Wingate and Cumberland Roads.

The house was supposed to be demolished this week. Cumberland County sheriff's deputies and the Arson Task Force say the blaze could be the seventh arson in the county in the past several months.
