The State Fire Marshal’s Office says an early Sunday morning fire in Crooksville is being deemed arson.

Spokeman Shane Cartmill says there were no utilities to the structure on 572 Washington Street. It was unoccupied, and Cartmill says it hadn’t been repaired in years.

This is the second fire this home has experienced. Cartmill says the one before Sunday’s occurred back in August of 2009, but he says he doesn’t have any details on that blaze.

The cause of the fire has been determined, but that information can’t be released at this time.

If you have any information on this fire, the State Fire Marshall’s Office is asking you contact 1-800-589-2728.
