A Monday morning fire has been ruled an arson by investigators with the Insurance and Safety Fire Commissioner's Office. Thursday morning, investigators say that a house fire that occurred around 8:30 Monday morning on January 13 was intentionally set. The fire was set under the double-wide mobile home located in the 9900 block of Highway 305 in Keysville. “The 1,836 square-foot mobile home suffered extensive interior damages. No one was living in the residence at the time,” said Safety Fire Commissioner John F. King. “Thankfully, Burke County emergency officials were able to quickly extinguish the fire before it consumed the entire residence.” Insurance and Safety Fire Commissioner John F. King is asking anyone with knowledge about this fire to call the Fire Investigations Unit.
