Unified Fire Authority crews rushed to the scene of a Millcreek house fire twice within a 12-hour period. Now, the possibility of arson is being investigated.
The woman living in the home at 2247 E. Atkin Avenue (2830 South) had left to stay with family after the first fire, reported about 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, had billowed smoke from the eaves and killed her four pet dogs.
Then at 4:37 a.m. Thursday, flames were reported engulfing the home. UFA Assistant Chief Marty Slack called the second fire "suspicious," and said arson investigators were called in.
