LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Lafayette police and fire are investigating what is believed to be arson at an apartment near downtown.
Crews were called to the 300 block of South 6th Street around 12:30 a.m. Saturday. That's just a few blocks south of the Tippecanoe County Public Library.
Assistant Fire Chief Brian Alkire said a fire was set at a front and a back door to the apartment. Investigators believe an accelerant was used on both doors.
Alkire said investigators have made contact with the property owner, but are still waiting to talk to the tenant.
No arrests have been made, and investigators are still working on leads. If you have any information, call Lafayette Fire or the We-Tip-Line at 1-800-78-CRIME.
