Fire in vacant Duncannon house suspected as arson

Posted: Updated:

A fire that damaged a vacant house near Duncannon early Friday is a suspected case of arson, according to state police.

Police said the fast moving garage fire spread to the roof of the house in the 3400 block of Susquehanna Trail in Watts Township, but volunteer firefighters spared the first and second floors from destruction.

The house has not been occupied for the past 15 years and has no utilities, according to police, who said firefighters were hampered by the property being overgrown with trees and bushes.

Anyone with any information on who may be responsible for the fire is asked to call state police fire marshal Trooper Michael Rugh at 717-249-2121.
