New charges have been filed in connection with the October 2015 arson fire that killed two Kansas City firefighters. Thu Hong Nguyen, the 45-year-old woman accused of starting that fire, now faces a new arson charge for allegedly setting a 2013 Lee’s Summit blaze for which the cause previously had been ruled to be undetermined. Both fires began in nail salons that Nguyen managed. In a separate indictment unsealed Tuesday, her boyfriend and business partner at the Kansas City salon, 51-year-old Nhat M. Pham, was charged with insurance fraud in connection with that fire in the 2600 block of Independence Boulevard.
