Arson Suspected in Farmington Hills House Fire
Authorities believe a house fire on Edgemoor was intentionally set.
A Sept. 28 house fire on Edgemoor, off Orchard Lake Rd. south of I-696 in Farmington Hills, was intentionally set, Farmington Hills Fire officials said in a press release issued Thursday.
Staff Lt. Jason Olszewski said the fire was started in the late evening. He said it appears someone poured an unknown accelerant through what may have been an old milk chute on the outside of the home. He said a neighbor quickly spotted the fire, limiting the damage.
A reward of up to $5,000 is available through the Michigan Arson Prevention Committee for information leading to the arrest or conviction of whoever is responsible for the fire.
"We're just looking for anyone who noticed anything in the area," Olszewski said, adding the reward "might help someone speak up."
Anyone with information should call the Farmington Hills Police Department at 248-871-2610 or the Michigan Arson Prevention Committee at 800-44-ARSON.
